Why You Should Get Your AC Tuned Up Before Summer Starts


Summer is just around the corner and you know what that means. It means you’ll soon be relying heavily on your air conditioner to keep you comfortable this summer. 

That also means that if you haven’t had your AC tuned up yet this year, there’s no better time than the present. Air conditioning maintenance in Caldwell, NJ is the best thing you can do to ensure that your air conditioner will see you and your family through the humid summer months. Let’s go over the many reasons why you should get your air conditioner tuned up if you haven’t already. 

Better Performance and Endurance

Think of what would happen if you didn’t get your car tuned up and the oil changed on a regular basis. Your car wouldn’t take you very far, would it. In fact, it would probably break down before you know it, leaving you stranded.

When you realize that a tune-up for your air conditioner gives the same benefits as a tune-up for a car, why it’s so important makes sense. Maintenance sets your air conditioner up for optimal success. 

Our technicians go through an extensive checklist of items to make sure that they’re all working properly. By getting maintenance before you start using your air conditioner on a daily basis, you’re doing the best thing you can to prevent unexpected problems with performance.

Fewer Repairs and Breakdowns

Did you know that 80% of the air conditioners that need repairs are ones that haven’t received routine maintenance? Nobody wants their air conditioner to break down on the hottest day of the year. But that’s what you run the risk of when you neglect maintenance.

Just as unappealing is the thought of an unexpected, costly repair. Breakdowns are inconvenient and expensive. Instead of sweating through both a hot summer day and a high repair bill, avoid these scenarios altogether by getting your AC tuned up.

Maintenance Pays For Itself

Many homeowners don’t want to get maintenance because they think it’s just another expense that they can avoid. However, maintenance definitely pays for itself in a lot of ways.

When you have your AC maintained regularly, it extends its lifespan. That 10 to 15 year lifespan estimate for your air conditioner only applies to systems that are maintained on a regular annual basis. 

And if you have a heat pump, it needs twice a year maintenance. Don’t run the risk of needing an early AC replacement by neglecting this essential service. If your AC or heat pump is under a warranty and you don’t get it maintained, you run the risk of voiding the warranty.

Better Home Comfort for Everyone

Let’s face it, utilities aren’t exactly cheap. Don’t you want your hard-earned dollar to go as far as it possibly can when you’re paying to cool your home down in the summer? A well-maintained air conditioner is one that runs smoothly and efficiently like a well-oiled machine–literally. 

After maintenance, you will be impressed with your AC’s ability to cool your home down quickly and effectively.
