There is no wrong time to schedule an AC tune-up. The most important thing is that you schedule a visit once a year. Most AC manufacturers recommend annual maintenance, and many of them even require it in their warranty guidelines.
If it’s been a while since you’ve had your AC unit serviced, it’s a good idea to schedule a tune-up to get your unit ready for summer. The scorching temperatures during Austin, TX, summers can put a lot of strain on your AC unit, especially if it has underlying issues.
Get it off your to-do list and call SALT for an AC tune-up today.
During an AC tune-up, our skilled professionals conduct a complete examination of both the outdoor and indoor elements of your AC system. We inspect the system and run tests to ensure that it is working as it should.
During a tune-up, we check:
Open space near the equipment
Overall system operation
Voltage and amperage
If we notice any parts or components that are out of place, we will make the necessary adjustments, and if we discover any underlying issues that need repair, we will alert you to the issue and walk you through the repair options before beginning work.
Benefits of Annual AC Maintenance
Just as you maintain your other investments, like your home and your car, you should invest in annual AC maintenance. Neglecting the AC unit is the most common reason homeowners experience AC breakdowns. In addition to avoiding breakdowns, there are several other benefits of scheduling an AC tune-up.
Improve Your AC’s Energy Efficiency
Your AC unit was designed to keep functioning even when it is experiencing underlying issues. However, if your unit is operating suboptimally, that means it is using more energy than it should be. If your AC is running harder than it needs to, it is also experiencing more wear and tear, which can contribute to a shorter lifespan.
During an AC tune-up, we’ll make adjustments or repairs that can make a big difference in your system’s efficiency. When your system is working efficiently, it saves energy and money as well as lengthening the overall life of your unit.
Avoid Future Repair Bills
Most of the time, costly repair bills can be traced back to an issue that could have been fixed a long time ago. Issues with your AC tend to get worse over time, so the sooner you can catch a problem, the better.
During an AC tune-up, SALT will uncover any underlying issues before they become big problems, saving you time and money on future repairs.
Save Money on Your Energy Bill
Your AC unit is a significant contributor to your monthly energy bill. In Austin, TX, you likely run your AC unit constantly during the summer, and it can get expensive. If you neglect AC maintenance, it could mean that your unit is using more energy than it should be.
After an AC tune-up, your unit will be operating at max energy efficiency, ultimately saving you money on your monthly energy bill.
