High summer temperatures test even the best air conditioning systems in Virginia Beach, VA. If your system is old or hasn’t been serviced for a while, the constant strain put on it during the summer could cause it to break down. Here’s how an AC tuneup can keep your system running and save you money.
Keep Your System Running Smoothly
During an AC tuneup, a trained HVAC service technician will clean and lubricate all of the important parts of your air conditioners. This reduces the amount of excess friction and heat that the system makes while it’s running, reducing the amount of wear and tear that occurs over time. This allows your system to run more efficiently, reducing its power usage and your energy bills.
The service technician will also inspect your system to make sure that it doesn’t have any common problems, like a coolant leak or blower fan that’s about to fail. Fixing problems before they cause a breakdown can save you money and keep you cool.
By cleaning and lubricating your system, an AC tuneup can actually prevent your air conditioner from breaking down prematurely. Don’t just depend on your system’s warranty to pay for those breakdowns, either. Most warranties require that you keep your air conditioner maintained for it to remain in effect.
Save Energy and Money Every Month
A tuned-up AC system uses less power to deliver the same amount of cool air as a dirty unit. Every day that your system runs, it;ll use less energy than it would have otherwise. This means that a tuneup, which usually runs under $100, can reduce your energy bills through being more efficient.
If it’s been more than a year since your air conditioner’s last service, it’s time for a tuneup. Call Fair Mechanical today to schedule some routine maintenance and get your AC system running right again.
