How Will You Know When It’s Time for an AC Tune-Up?
AC tune-ups are a type of preventive maintenance service provided by your Myrtle Beach HVAC company. These simple, short visits actually play a vital role in the performance of your air conditioning system, helping it to function efficiently and reliably throughout the cooling season. Scheduling regular AC tune-ups is the single most effective way to prevent some of the most common air conditioning problems you’re likely to encounter, offering excellent value for your money and greater peace of mind.
You Haven’t Had It Inspected Yet This Year
Your air conditioner should be cleaned and inspected one to two times each year. While the best time to schedule this service is in the spring before you need your air conditioner, you can schedule this service for any time of year, including the summer cooling season if it hasn’t yet been inspected. AC tune-ups are important to schedule even if you haven’t experienced any problems at all with your home cooling system. This is because preventive maintenance is meant to keep problems from occurring by taking steps to address issues that increase the risk of poor efficiency and breakdowns before they can affect your air conditioner’s function. Homeowners that schedule regular AC tune-ups may never experience a problem with their cooling system at all, and are also more likely to keep their current system installed for the full extent of its predicted lifetime.
You Feel Like Your Air Conditioner Just Isn’t Working as Well
AC tune-up services aim to improve air conditioner function by cleaning the system and lubricating or replacing parts as they begin to wear out. Over time, dirt and other airborne particles can easily coat the interior of the system—this is why the air filter should be changed regularly. As a homeowner, you know your air conditioning system and what you can expect from it better than anyone else. While your air conditioner may still respond normally to your thermostat, you may notice other signs that the system isn’t working as well as it might have in the past. These signs can include poor airflow, a dustier home, higher-than-expected energy bills for the current weather, and frequent cycling without much improvement in the temperature of your home. If you find yourself turning the thermostat lower than usual or simply feeling more uncomfortable in terms of temperature, humidity, or air quality, it’s time to schedule an AC tune-up. In the majority of cases, this tune-up service is all that’s needed to restore the efficiency of your air conditioner and improve your home’s indoor air quality, helping you save on repairs by taking action before they are needed.
