When it comes to AC maintenance, it can be easy to forget about scheduling a tune-up or to let small problems go unaddressed. However, regular AC maintenance can keep your AC running better for longer and prevent larger issues with the system. Here’s everything you need to know about regular AC maintenance.
How Often Should I Service My Air Conditioner?
You should have your air conditioner serviced twice a year, once before summer and once before winter. By having an AC tune-up done before the seasons change, you can ensure that your AC and furnace are in working order before the weather changes and you switch from heating to cooling (or vice versa).
What is Done in an AC Tune-Up?
You may be wondering what kind of service you’re actually paying for when you get a tune-up. Don’t worry — technicians do more than you might think to make sure your AC is working safely and properly. The tune-up inspection addresses many things, including:
- Inspecting and cleaning dirty coils, fans, etc.
- Testing proper functionality of each part of the AC
- Leak detection
- Testing pressure, airflow, thermostat and more
Lee’s Air & Plumbing technicians conduct a 26-point inspection to make sure that your AC or furnace is working properly before you begin using it. Our comprehensive tune-up also includes an air filter replacement.
Benefits of Getting an AC Tune-Up
By having a tune-up on your HVAC system two times per year, you can prevent small problems from causing more damage and even extend the life of your AC. Having regular maintenance done on your HVAC system will make sure that it is running as efficiently as possible, saving you money on your energy bills. You also bring yourself peace-of-mind that your furnace will run safely in the winter and your AC will efficiently cool your home in the summer.
