Why You Should Get An Air Conditioning Tune-Up Today
Summer’s sweltering days and muggy nights are officially upon us, but between driving the kids to swim practice and day camp and taking care of a thousand other things homeowners face, it can be hard to find time to schedule a tune-up for your air conditioning system. But, delaying a tune-up, and overlooking proper preventative maintenance, will cost you in the long run, and you definitely don’t want to get caught in an Atlanta heat wave with broken or malfunctioning!
When R.S. Andrews performs our comprehensive AC tune-up, we’ll be helping make the whole unit or system run more efficiently, so it can use less energy to cool more of your home. More efficient energy usage means lower energy bills!
When AC units fail, most of the time they do so without any warning to the homeowner. In fact the most common causes of Air Conditioning failure are all easily detected during a tune-up, which is why we always recommend that you schedule service without delay, before the weather heats up even more.
One of the most common reasons for an AC unit to suddenly stop working is because of low refrigerant. Refrigerant is the chemical that is used to cool the air, and a leak, or other problem in the refrigerant system, will stop your cool air supply, and leave you with a sweaty, overheated, and unhappy family.
Another common problem our technicians can easily detect during a tune-up is a malfunctioning outside fan. Most people forget about this very important system component, until the fan suddenly stops working. But since the fan can stop running correctly long before it suddenly stops working, underscoring another important reason to get a tune-up today.
So this year, schedule a tune-up of your AC system without delay. You’ll save money, and keep your home cool as the mercury continues to rise, and you’ll have the peace of mind that comes with knowing you won’t have an unexpected AC failure on a hot summer day.
