Why An AC Tune-up Is So Important
For Tallahassee homeowners, indoor comfort is a high priority. Industry studies show that seasonal AC tune-ups can reduce breakdowns by up to 95 percent. By substituting preventive maintenance for breakdown repair, you can keep your system on top of its game.
Prevent AC Repairs
An AC tune-up will disclose any vulnerabilities that could, if ignored, result in a system repair. Your air conditioner might seem fine right now, but any weak links could reach their breaking point when temperatures soar. The result could be costly AC repairs or even an emergency AC replacement.
Maintain Energy Efficiency
According to a study by The New Buildings Institute, poor HVAC maintenance can raise base operating costs by up to 60 percent. Conversely, regular AC maintenance can reduce energy costs by up to 20 percent. Air conditioners must be clean and in high-performance mode to be efficient. Dirty buildup, clogged filters and more can all make your system overwork. The unnecessary wear and tear will age your equipment prematurely and can inflate electric bills. Seasonal tune-ups can correct performance issues so that your system can operate efficiently.
Maximize AC Lifespan
The average lifespan of a properly maintained and correctly installed air conditioner can be anywhere from 10 to 20 years. Without regular tune-ups, wear and tear will escalate, performance deteriorates and energy bills soar. Over time, poor maintenance can reduce an air conditioner’s service life by up to half.
Avoid Indoor Air Pollution
After a long cooling season, Tallahassee air conditioners typically need a good cleaning. That dusty, dirty-buildup can blow into your home and pollute your indoor air. Contaminants can also invade your home if you operate your AC with a dirty filter.
