Your home’s air conditioning system worked very hard last summer. And it’s going to work hard again this summer.

Now is the time to make sure that your air conditioning system is up to the job with an annual maintenance tune-up. Our licensed, experienced, and knowledgeable service technicians will make sure all the components of the A/C system are in good running order, lubricated if needed, and that it has adequate refrigerant.

The tune-up also gives our service technicians an up-close look at the air conditioning system. They can spot problems and fix them before they become worse and cause a breakdown of the A/C system.

Air conditioning makes up about half of your home’s energy costs in the summer. A well-maintained A/C runs at its best possible efficiency, helping to keep those energy costs under control without having to sacrifice comfort.

This is the ideal time to have your air conditioning tune-up, as the heating season is winding down and the cooling season hasn’t started. You will be able to schedule an appointment at the best time for you. And if there are problems, they can be dealt with now before you turn on the air conditioning.

Things You Can Do For Your A/C System

While the tune-up is a job for a professional service technician, you can help take care of your home’s air conditioning to make it run better and more efficiently

When you are cleaning up your yard, make sure to go over to the outdoor A/C unit and remove sticks, leaves, litter, and any other debris on or around the unit. Trim back any landscaping so there is ample space around the unit so it can operate efficiently and safely.

Give the air conditioner a test by letting it run for about 20 minutes. Observe closely how it is operating, take notes, and tell the service technician what you saw and heard.

Upgrade to a new programmable or smart thermostat. These can help cut your energy costs for cooling by 10%.
