Home Cooling System Annual Maintenance: Why Is It Important?

People sometimes ask us, “Is an air conditioner tune-up really necessary every year? Our answer is always the same: YES!

An air conditioning system is a major home comfort investment, and like any investment it needs to be protected. The best way to do that? Have your A/C professionally maintained every year.

Four reasons your A/C needs some TLC before you start it up for the year:

  • More reliable equipment – About four out of the five air conditioner repairs we see are preventable; proper care will help you avoid inconvenient equipment breakdowns, and the potentially costly A/C repairs that come with them. If you have a medical condition that gets worse in the heat, having a reliable cooling system isn’t a luxury – it’s a necessity.
  • Lower bills – A well-maintained air conditioner runs more efficiently, so you’ll save on your utility bills – often enough over the course of a single cooling season to pay for your annual tune-up.
  • Longer system life – Replacing your neglected A/C earlier than you need to can be a drag – and a costly one, at that. Regular maintenance can add years to the life of your air conditioner.
  • Improved air quality – A well-maintained air conditioner helps control humidity in your home, keeping air healthy and helping to prevent mold problems. Running it on high pollen days can help you breathe more easily, too.
