The common rule of thumb when it comes to your AC unit is to get an annual tune-up. However, this varies depending on the age of your HVAC unit. If your unit is on the newer side, then the yearly check-up should do the job. But if you find your home has an older unit, then you should have HVAC experts out two times a year for regular tune-ups. This way, you are ensuring your AC unit is running properly and keeping your home comfortable.
In our busy day-to-day lives, it can be easy to forget to schedule an AC service technician to come out to your home for a tune-up. However, just as your annual doctor visits are important for your health, the same goes for the annual AC tune-up.
Just like spring cleaning, a spring tune-up is the best way to get your home ready for the summer. It is likely that your AC unit has not been used full time throughout the winter if much at all. If it has been in hibernation for months, we cannot expect it to start back up and run perfectly every day throughout the hot summer months. This is why a spring AC tune-up is a great way to gear up for the summer and ensure your home stays cool all summer long.
Just as an older HVAC unit needs more frequent tune-ups to increase the longevity of its lifespan, missing an annual tune-up can have the adverse effect. Tune-ups will ensure that every part of your AC unit is running perfectly after the winter slumber. And, it is equally important that you make sure not just anyone is doing your annual tune-up. Be sure you call a professional air conditioning service. A professional technician will check the belts, filters, hoses and other components of your HVAC unit to warrant they’re in excellent condition.
