We’re going to let you guys in on a secret. No matter what the weather is doing, no matter what your neighbor or the chatty guy from the gas station says, it’s not too late to tune-up your AC. No, really. You can do it in winter, in the heat of summer or as a celebration on President’s Day.
There are no rules. It’s up to you.
Of course, there are better times than others to schedule an AC tune-up. Most households plan it for the spring to ensure their cooling systems are prepared for a hot and humid Philadelphia summer. It’s a logical plan but it isn’t always easy.
Maybe you forgot this year. Perhaps you were light on cash or managing a heavy workload and didn’t get around to it. It’s not too late. As temperatures rise here in the Philadelphia, take the opportunity to optimize your air conditioning and live life in the cool lane.
Here’s some great reasons to schedule an AC service today:
Regular Maintenance Saves Cash
According to HVAC specialists, the average air conditioning system loses 5% efficiency each year it goes without routine maintenance. In many ways, AC units are like classic cars. Spending little and often on tune-ups is the best way to ensure you never need to spend handsomely on expensive repairs.
For a high-quality AC unit, an annual service and tune-up is more than enough to avoid unexpected breakdowns. These routine checks ensure all components are operating at optimal efficiency which is also important for saving money on energy bills.
Tune-up, Cool Down, Be Ready for Anything
Philadelphia can get awfully hot and sticky in the summer months. If you’re a long-time resident, you already know the risk of confronting hot weather without an AC. Aside from saving money on utility bills and preventing sudden breakdowns, tune-ups ensure an AC system can cope with all conditions.
Regular maintenance checks are the easiest way to tell how many years an older air conditioning unit has left. Instead of peering at yours suspiciously until it finally breaks and confirms your concerns, get to know it better. Tune-ups are a great way to gauge an AC’s lifespan and prepare for the day repairs or a replacement is needed.
Improve the Quality Of Your Air
Don’t forget, air conditioning plays a vital role in the maintenance of healthy indoor air. However, AC units can only clean a home’s air if all their ducts and filters are working efficiently. Over time, AC components lose efficiency due to built-up dirt, dust and grime. Having your AC system inspected once or twice a year is the simplest way to identify blockages and keep clean, filtered air circulating through your home.
