As the months get hotter, you need to make sure your air conditioning unit is up-to-par in terms of performance. After all, you’ll be relying on it to improve your indoor comfort, so giving it an annual tune-up is imperative. AC Works & Refrigeration, your local air conditioning repair, replacement and maintenance experts, explains its benefits and more below:

Preventing Breakdowns

A single AC issue like a refrigerant leak or a faulty motor, if not addressed right away, can lead to more problems, putting stress on the entire cooling system. Having it inspected and repaired before the summer season arrives helps technicians identify these problems early, reducing the chances of the unit breaking down when you need it most.

Saving Money

Remember that more than half of your energy costs encompass the heating and cooling of your home. An AC unit tune-up will help improve your unit’s efficiency and performance. This is a worthwhile investment since you’ll be avoiding costly repairs down the road.

Extending the AC’s Lifespan

Similar to oil changes for your car, yearly HVAC maintenance boosts your air conditioning unit’s usable lifetime. By keeping it free of dust and dirt and making sure all parts are lubricated and working as intended, you won’t have to worry about replacing it anytime soon.

How Do I Know If It’s Time to Get a Tune-Up?

If your cooling system is acting strangely, it’s a good idea to have it tuned up as soon as possible. Here are some of the common symptoms of an impending problem that warrant a quick inspection by a licensed HVAC technician:

  • The AC unit is blowing warm air instead of cold air.
  • The AC vents put out weak airflow.
  • Peculiar sounds care coming from the equipment.
  • A musty odor is coming from the AC unit, which may be the  result of mold growth caused by moisture.
