With the spring season upon us, many homeowners are opening up their windows to let the fresh spring time air fill their home. Spring time is the perfect time to get your air conditioner tuned up. The cold winter season is just about done and soon the air conditioner will begin running constantly. To ensure your air conditioner runs efficiently and smoothly with no failures it is important to have your air conditioner serviced. JMS Air Conditioning & Heating would like to share why you should have your air conditioner tuned up before the heat of summer kicks in.
Why You Should have an AC Tune Up in Spring & a Furnace Tune Up in Fall
Often you will hear from many HVAC technicians that you should have your air conditioner tuned up in spring and the heating system tuned up in fall. During the cooling season the air conditioner will run constantly while trying to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. As the air conditioner runs more frequently components will begin to wear down and put a strain on the entire HVAC system. By having the air conditioner serviced before the heat kicks in, the HVAC technician can inspect the air conditioner. They will look for any signs of possible failures or problems with the air conditioner. The air conditioner’s moving components are cleaned and lucubrated if needed to help enhance the air conditioner efficiency. The electrical system and all wiring is inspected to see if there is any damage or loose connections which is a very common problem. The technician will also make sure all screws, nuts and bolts are tightened and that there is no debris inside or near the air conditioning unit. As the HVAC technician runs through the tune up he ensures the health of the air conditioner.
Why AC Maintenance is Worth It
Home AC Efficiency – One benefit of having the air conditioner tuned up before summer is that it helps improve the air conditioner’s efficiency. While an air conditioner may run fine for years, it may not be running as well as it could be. A strain on the air conditioner forces it to work harder which costs you more money. With better efficiency comes electrical savings.
Preventing Need for Major AC Repairs – Tuning up the air conditioner can also prevent future failures and premature wear and tear on the HVAC system. By having a licensed HVAC technician service your HVAC system they look for potential problems and repair or replace components as they wear down.
AC Inspection & Assessment – During the tune up the HVAC technician will thoroughly inspect the air conditioner and other features of the HVAC system. They can assess the condition of the HVAC system and even provide a report. In some cases they can detect severe problems or eventual complete failure of the unit. This way you will know to begin saving for a new air conditioner and not be surprised.
Longer Life of Air Conditioner – HVAC systems that are serviced seasonally last longer and function better. Tuning up the air conditioner helps prevent premature wear and tear, improves efficiency which in the long term, results in a much longer lasting air conditioning unit. Replacing and repairing is very expensive, but you can prevent preventable costs by having your air conditioner tuned up.
