Summer is coming in hot and thanks to the California heat, it’s going to take a toll on the limits of your AC system. Preventive maintenance on your AC will save you time and money as well as ensure that you and your family stays cool in the high temperatures of California summers we have all come to love. Regular maintenance will also avert possible emergency calls to various AC repair services.
A tune- up is not meant to fix big issues but instead necessary to iron out the smaller issues that will inevitably add up when you use your HVAC unit over a long period of time. A tune- up also helps take the stress and years off your unit as well as keeping it working efficiently as if it was just installed. Failure to preform regular tune-ups will continuously raise small issues that in turn will become bigger problems in the (near) future will end up costing you lots of money.
Decreased Utility Costs
When your HVAC system isn’t working up to its fullest potential that also means a significant increase in utility bills. While you may be ‘saving’ the money you would spend on a basic tune- up, you are in fact just throwing that money at unnecessarily higher utility bills. Increased utility bills don’t just affect your wallet but also our planet.
Preventing Future Problems
As small issues pile up, your AC unit may not show irregularities unless seen by a professional, but they do change how your unit functions. These problems may go unnoticed for years, slowly aging your system faster then it should. The longer you wait the more damage is inflicted on your HVAC unit. With regular pre-season tune- ups, your system will be equipped to fully handle the increased use in the following season.
Enhanced Unit Life-Expectancy
Every unit has a certain life expectancy that can be prolonged with regular maintenance. This will allow you to enjoy your investment longer with unremitting energy efficiency. Every maintenance, every tune-up renews the condition of the unit and adds tens of years to the expected lifespan of your unit.
Often, HVAC companies add a clause to their warranty agreement which stipulates that the unit undergo regular tune-ups at the hands of a licensed professional. If this stipulation is ignored and a annual tune-up is not preformed, it can render the terms of the warranty null and void. This means that all future repairs for the unit will have to be paid for out-of-pocket.
