The Importance of Annual Home Air Conditioner Tune-Up

As the summer continues to heat up, your air conditioning unit is working hard to cool you down. One crucial thing you can do to help your AC unit keep you cool all summer long is schedule an annual tune-up.

Annual tune-ups are imperative to the longevity and performance of your home air conditioning unit. When you schedule routine AC tune-ups with a professional technician, you can help increase the life of your unit, save energy and money, prevent significant issues within your unit, and stay comfortable throughout the hot summer months.

Why is an AC tune-up necessary?

Think of an AC tune-up service as a routine doctor appointment. Professional HVAC technicians, like the ones at Brackett Heating and Air, are there to make sure everything is running smoothly and to get ahead of any significant issues.

The maintenance we perform will ensure that your whole system functions as efficiently as possible. Without regular tune-ups, your air conditioning system will have to work harder to cool down your home, increasing the energy it uses. This will ultimately raise your energy bill, which is something no homeowner wants.

Home air conditioner maintenance is vital in getting the most out of your AC unit so that it can continue to deliver the quality comfort you need throughout the summer.

What are the benefits of an AC tune-up?
High-Quality Cooling Performance

It’s no secret that your air conditioning system’s efficacy dissipates over the years, and without regular AC tune-ups, your system’s efficiency will decline even quicker. Annual air conditioner maintenance lets you get the most out of your unit.

During an AC tune-up service, all of the critical components in your unit will be inspected, cleaned, and adequately maintained to ensure your air conditioner is producing the highest quality cooling performance possible.

Save Energy and Money

The lack of care your system receives without annual tune-ups causes significant wear and tear on your air conditioning unit’s parts. Those parts will continue to operate under stress, causing your AC unit to use more and more energy to cool your home.

Regular tune-ups keep your energy bills low by giving your AC unit the necessary maintenance to produce quality airflow without using significant energy.

Increased Lifespan

Annual air conditioning tune-ups help to increase the longevity of your AC unit; a well-maintained one can last up to 20 years!

The preventative maintenance we perform leads to fewer system issues, ultimately extending your air conditioner’s life. This prevents you from replacing your air conditioning system sooner than you would like and allows you to get the most out of your unit.

Peace of Mind

Nothing compares to the peace of mind you will feel when you receive regular AC tune-ups. You can rest easy the whole summer, knowing that your system has been appropriately cared for by a professional HVAC technician and that a mid-summer AC breakdown is highly unlikely.

Additionally, when you are enrolled in our Comfort Club, also known as Planned Maintence, Brackett Heating and Air will maintain your air conditioning unit and cover it with our “No Breakdown Guarantee.” This coverage ensures that if you accept the repairs we recommend during the tune-up, we will return free of charge if a breakdown happens during the plan’s specified time frame of 60 to 90 days!
