Now that summer is quickly approaching, getting an air conditioner tune up should be a top priority. Attilio Plumbing, Heating & Cooling understands the importance of maintaining your AC unit, which is why we have compiled a list of benefits to getting a tune up before summer.
Save money on your utility bills
Getting an AC tune up helps improve the function of your unit, which will allow the air conditioner’s engine to run more efficiently and lower your energy bill. Heating and cooling bills can be expensive and count for half your utility bill. Being able to save money is a good reason alone to get a tune up.
Avoid future breakdowns
No one wants to be without an air conditioner on the hottest days of summer. It is better to be proactive and get your AC unit checked in advance so that it is functioning properly on those extremely hot days. Waiting till your unit breaks or isn’t working correctly is way more inconvenient for you than calling us in advance when there is no issue. That’s not to say that your unit won’t sometimes have issues, but with getting tune ups and regular maintenance those chances decrease.
Improves air quality
It’s extremely important to take care of your home’s indoor air quality as sometimes the air can be filled with debris and allergens. Air conditioning tune ups improve air quality as filters are replaced during the service. By replacing the filters, we ensure fresher, cleaner air coming into your home.
Extends the life of your AC unit
The average life expectancy of your air conditioning unit is approximately 10 to 15 years. This lifespan can increase with regular cleaning and maintenance. Properly maintaining your unit allows for it to work at its ultimate best. Scheduling maintenance services and having it checked more often than not could save your unit for a few more seasons.
