As far as homeowners are concerned, maintenance services from a licensed provider are perceived as a luxury expense and not a necessary need, unfortunately. The truth of the matter is that maintenance is essential. A vehicle, for example, requires you to change the oil, rotate the tires, and other essential maintenance, otherwise, it will not last long. A tune-up should be scheduled for your air conditioner at least once a year, preferably at the start of the season. The best time to get the unit tuned up is late winter / early spring, but if you miss that window, it is never too late to get it done. Today, we at Hal Mechanical would like to discuss the significance of air conditioning tune-up services.
What Does an AC Check Involve?
An air conditioning tune-up service typically involves inspections, safety system testing, performance, check, cleaning, lubing, hardware and electrical components are tightened if they become loose, any worn parts are replaced, and more, in general, though there is much care and detail put into the tune-up service by your qualified technician. With a comprehensive tune-up the air conditioner system is better protected, particularly for the demand the Las Vegas desert requires from it.
Why is an Air Conditioner Tune Up Worth It?
Listed below are the major reasons as to why tune-ups should be done.
Decrease Costly AC Breakdowns: The technician performing the tune-up can identify and fix any small problems in many cases before the develop into serious issues. As you budget the cost for routine maintenance, unexpected repairs are not usually planned and can be hard to afford. You can save money since tune-ups can significantly help reduce the risk of costly break downs in the long run.
Extend AC Unit’s Life Expectancy: Generally, the air conditioning unit is designed to last anywhere from 10-20 years, but it depends on the quality of the manufacturing and the routine care and maintenance it receives during its life. It will perform longer with the less strain and stress on the unit. The air conditioner operating mechanisms can even be extended in most cases when it experiences less repairs and damage. The air conditioner runs in better condition for as long as possible with routine tune-ups.
Manage Energy Costs: Costing you more every month to operate as the efficiency of the air conditioner dwindles and as it stacks over time, the unit loses its energy efficiency. With annual tune-ups the energy usage and efficiency are better managed to keep it under control and ensure the unit is over-exerting itself.
Improve Indoor Air Quality: Along with routine cleaning, as well as maintenance, replacing dirty filters enables your system to get it done so it can better filter the debris, dust, and allergens in the air.
Maximize AC Unit’s Performance: To allow the unit to retain its efficiency and performance, the tune-up makes sure that the air conditioner doesn’t overwork or use too much energy to compensate.
Validate AC Warranty: In order to validate the warranty, most manufacturers have clauses in the warranties that require you to perform regular maintenance and have written documentation.
