When living in Houston, Texas we pretty much deal with heat nearly year round. Turning our furnaces on during our “winter” time is rare in itself, which means we usually tend to run our air conditioning systems much more than not. With this being said, taking proper care of our AC is very important.
Part of taking care of these AC units is making sure to do our own maintenance as well as to have that annual tune-up schedule in early spring to prepare the AC for the hot and humid summer months.
Now when you hear about giving your AC system a tune-up, one of the first questions that pops into your head is when and how often are you supposed to have these tune-ups done?
It is always important to take care of all your possessions, and that also includes your AC unit as well. With the cost to purchase and install these units, it is important to stay on top of the maintenance and have it done properly to help keep it running to its full lifespan.
If neglected, the air conditioner will eventually give out, and much quicker than the promised lifespan. AC tune-ups, as known as preventative maintenance helps make sure that any potential problems are solved before repairs are needed, as well as making sure that your system is running at its full potential.
These tune-ups are generally only needed once a year, which is what most warranties require in order to keep it from becoming void.
Having a tune-up done regularly, meaning annually, can end up being a big money saver in the long run. As well as give you and your family that piece of mind without the worry of your air conditioner unit breaking down in the middle of July.
One of the worse things that could happen if you skip your annual preventative maintenance is that your AC system breaks down in July, which you then call to schedule a troubleshoot and repair appointment and find that it is going to take at least 3 weeks for someone to come out.
Summertime for HVAC specialists is like Christmas time for retail stores. It is their busiest time due to those that do not schedule and have their annual tune-up done, which brings out HVAC specialists, like Autumn Air out. Needing repairs done generally takes much longer than a tune-up as they need to determine the issue as well as possibly having to wait for parts to replace the damaged ones.
It is always best to go ahead and schedule your annual tune-up as early as possible during the spring that way you meet the standards needed for your warranty as well as keep you and your family comfortable through the hot and humid summer months.
