Unfortunately, maintenance services from a licensed provider are often perceived as a luxury expense and not a necessary need as far as homeowners are concerned. However, HVAC maintenance is critical. Like a vehicle, if you do not change your oil, rotate the tires, and other essential maintenance, the vehicle breaks down. The cooling system should be tuned up once year. Even if you miss that window, it is never too late to get it done, but the best time to get the unit tuned up is late winter / early spring. The importance of air conditioning tune-up services is what we at Hal Mechanical would like to discuss today.
Why is an AC Maintenance Service Important?
The cooling system tune-up, though there is much care and detail put into the tune-up service by your qualified technician, involves inspections, safety system testing, performance checks, cleaning, lubing, hardware and electrical components are tightened if they become loose, any worn parts are replaced, and more, in general. Especially for the demand the Las Vegas desert requires from it with a comprehensive tune-up the air conditioner system is better protected. Primary reasons as to why tune-ups should be done are listed below.
Reduce Energy Costs
The unit loses its energy efficiency, costing you more every month to operate as the efficiency of the air conditioner dwindles and as it stacks over time. To keep it under control and ensure the unit is over-exerting itself with annual tune-ups the energy usage and efficiency are better managed.
Stop AC from Breaking Down So Often!
Before they turn into major issues during the process, the technician performing the tune-up can identify and fix any small problems in many cases. Unexpected repairs are not usually planned and can be hard to afford as you budget the cost for routine maintenance. In the long run, you can save money since tune-ups can significantly help reduce the risk of costly break downs.
Extend Life of AC Unit
Depending on the quality of the manufacturing and the routine care and maintenance it receives during its life; the air conditioning unit is designed to last anywhere from 10-20 years. With the less strain and stress on the unit, it will perform longer. when it experiences less repairs and damage, the air conditioner operating mechanisms can even be extended in most cases. For as long as possible with routine tune-ups, the air conditioner runs in better condition.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
Replacing dirty filters enables your system to get it done so it can better filter the debris, dust, and allergens in the air, routine cleaning, as well as maintenance.
Maintain Performance of AC Unit
For other issues the unit may be experiencing, making certain that the air conditioner doesn’t overwork or use too much energy to compensate, allowing the unit to retain its efficiency and performance.
AC Warranty Validation
Most manufacturers have clauses in the warranties that require you to perform regular maintenance and have written documentation as well in order to validate the warranty
