In Hudson, Ohio, most families need to use their air conditioners all summer to keep their homes comfortable. This can take its toll on the system, and without regular maintenance, it can begin to break down. At the very least, the system will run less efficiently each year, leading to rising energy costs. More and more customers are discovering the benefits of paying for a quality AC tune-up each year to keep their systems working great. At Jennings Heating and Cooling, we are making it easy and affordable for you to invest in the future of your AC through our preventative maintenance plans.
The Benefits of Regular AC Tune-Ups
Your air conditioning system needs a lot of care in order for it to work its best. Forgetting to schedule service can lead to several problems, some of which can be expensive. Regular tune-ups can have many benefits for both your system and your wallet. Here are a few of these benefits.
Tune-ups Make Your System Efficient
Many things can get in the way of your AC working as efficiently as it can. Worn out mechanical parts, a dirty air filter, or dirt and dust clinging to the system can cause it to have to work harder to produce cold air and transfer it to your home. A tune-up is a good way to ensure that there is no wear and tear, buildup, or dust on any of the components.
Tune-ups Minimize Repairs
Every AC system will need its share of repairs over its lifespan. However, expensive repairs that happen without warning can usually be prevented through regular maintenance. During a tune-up appointment, a licensed technician can usually find problems before they escalate into something more serious. Not only does this lead to fewer repairs, but it can also cause them to be less serious.
Tune-Ups Extend an AC’s Lifespan
When your system has a tune-up regularly, it will continue providing reliable cooling for your home for many years. The lifespan of your system is increased when it is given the best care, and this fact is reflected in most manufacturer’s warranties. A warranty can become invalid if the owner of the unit has failed to have routine service done.
When Should You Schedule a Tune-Up?
You should be having your system inspected, cleaned, and lubricated every year. It is up to the homeowner to find a time of the year that works best for them, but we usually recommend that you have your system serviced by a Jennings Heating and Cooling technician at the end of the winter or in the early spring. This allows you to complete any necessary repairs and have your AC running at peak efficiency before the first hot day. Whenever you choose to schedule your tune-up, be sure to put a reminder on your calendar for the same time next year so that your system can continue to have exemplary care.
What Is Included in a Tune-Up?
At Jenning Heating and Cooling, our preventative maintenance services feature a 15 point checklist for all of our AC tune-ups. The first step is to check the evaporator coil, condenser, fan, filter, thermostat, compressor, and all of the exterior portions of the AC to make sure they are clean, in good condition, and free from obstruction. We tighten electrical connections, lubricate moving parts inside the motor, and check for any components that need to be replaced or serviced.
Our Maintenance Plans
One of the most affordable ways to ensure that your system gets the tune-up it needs each year is to join our Rewards Club.
