Be Prepared Before Summer Temps. Rise: Importance of A Heating & Air Conditioning Maintenance (Tune-Up)

With the summer around the corner and even warmer weather on the way, you are surely going to use your air conditioning systems more than ever before. As much as summer time brings a lot of fun and outdoor activities, this part of the year is definitely going to be tough on your air conditioner. Your air conditioner will be expected to run almost constantly, and if it hasn’t been serviced or tuned up since it went into hibernation at the end of last year, you might as well be heading for a disaster. It is just like embarking on a marathon without training or stretching; your guess is as good as mine, it is surely going to be a catastrophe. Hence, the importance of your air conditioning system maintenance/tune-up before summer cannot be overemphasized. It is a necessity to ensure and facilitate the proper working condition of your air conditioning system for the heavy summer usage. For this course I have compiled three benefits of tuning up your heating and air conditioning system before summer below.


Since the summer season will require large amount of energy to cool your home due to increased temperatures, you will need your heating/air conditioning system to work at optimal condition. During the course of a professional tune-up, technicians will inspect the system to ensure that all parts are in optimal working condition. Filters are cleaned or replaced if you are using disposable filters so that air will flow into your home freely. Other parts like the thermostat will also be checked during maintenance as temperature reading on your thermostat should match the temperature in your home, otherwise cooling your home might be difficult. All these simple, but important tune up will help improve the efficiency of your air-conditioning unit, thereby setting you up for the summer.


Since you will be using your air-conditioning unit more than ever before this summer, there is bound to be pressure on it, hence a breakdown or system failure might be imminent. Without proper maintenance your air-conditioning could break down when you need it the most, and I am pretty sure you don’t want that to happen. However, tuning up guarantees long life span of your air-conditioning unit and prevents frequent breakdowns.


You may be surprised to learn that half of your home’s total energy usage stems from heating and air conditioning. If your air-conditioning system isn’t working properly and efficiently, you might be paying more than you should be paying for your electric bills. So, tuning up your air conditioner will help you save a lot on electricity bill.
