When spring comes, so do the warmer temperatures. And when the house starts to heat up, the first thing we do is go to the thermostat and flip it to COOL so our air conditioner will kick on and make you comfortable.
But every once in awhile, you flip the switch, and…nothing. A moment of panic kicks in as you realize your air conditioner isn’t working. Thoughts of expensive repairs go through your head, or even that it is finally time to replace that old system. But did you know that you can help prevent that potential headache?
Air Conditioner Tune-ups Provide Many Benefits
A preseason tune-up on your air conditioner has many benefits for Bowie area homeowners:
1. Peace of mind. Save the horror of the AC not working by having it checked BEFORE you need it. A tune-up can identify potential breakdowns before they happen.
2. Utility savings. A well maintained air conditioner is a clean air conditioner. That means it doesn’t have to work as hard to keep you cool, which means it doesn’t use as much electricity to run. That saves you money on your cooling bills.
3. Warranty fulfillment. Some manufacturers require regular, planned maintenance to fulfill their warranties should something break on your air conditioner. There is nothing worse than getting a surprise from your air conditioner technician that a significant repair is not under warranty because the air conditioner wasn’t properly maintained.
4. Extends life. Your air conditioner can actually last longer, which means you don’t have to install a new air conditioner as often.
