With Easter right around the corner, you’re probably starting to think about closing up your Sarasota or Charlotte County home for the summer. But is your air conditioner ready? Florida’s summer heat puts a lot of strain on air conditioners, so before you leave, you’ll want to make sure that your system is up to the challenge. You wouldn’t drive your car cross-country without first checking to make sure it’s in good running condition first, right? In the same way, tuning up your air conditioner prepares it for the “journey” through the summer. Here’s how:
#1 Tuning Up Your AC Prevents Breakdowns
To keep your home and belongings free of mold and mildew, it’s important to keep your AC running through the summer while you’re away. But imagine that your air conditioner quits running when you’re not here. By the time you learn of the problem, your AC may have been down for a few days or more (unless you have a Wifi-Enabled Thermostat, which notifies your AC contractor automatically if there is a problem). This leaves time for mold and mildew to begin to grow, placing your home and belongings at risk.
A pre-summer tune up will help prevent untimely breakdowns. Your AC technician will check and clean the critical mechanical parts, calibrate your thermostat, and make sure your air conditioner is in top running condition. He will be able to detect potential problems before they become an issue. Preventative maintenance is almost always less costly – and less of a hassle – than repairing a broken system.
#2 Tuning Up Your AC Lowers Cooling Costs
During the cooler season when your air conditioner isn’t used as often, dust and debris builds up on the coils. This can cause your system to work less efficiency. By cleaning the coils and other critical mechanical parts, your technician can increase the operating efficiency of your air conditioner, saving you money on your energy bill.
#3 Annual Tune Ups Increase Your AC’s Lifespan
Just as a well-maintained car lasts longer than one whose maintenance was neglected, your air conditioner’s lifespan will increase as a result of regular tune ups. Many times, though, your AC isn’t at the top of your priority list. Busy schedules make it hard to remember to schedule your annual AC maintenance. If this sounds like you, you might benefit from our Annual Maintenance Program. You’ll receive benefits like waived trip charges, and discounted parts.
