Signs You Need an A/C Tune-up
HVAC units need to have a/c tune-ups on a yearly basis to make sure they are working effectively. Air conditioning tune-ups can be a difference maker in how long your system lasts. Tune-ups cover all aspects of your home HVAC system including the main unit, the ducts, and vents.
There are several common signs that indicate your air conditioning could be overdue for a tune-up. Regular maintenance is important to prevent future problems and to catch issues that have developed before they become unmanageable.

Problems at the Air Vent
Go to your air source and check the air temperature and air flow. If warm air is coming out of the vents instead of cool, you will need to have it checked. This is a sign you are wasting money on a unit that is not working efficiently. A common cause for this problem is dirty coils, which can be cleaned during a tune-up.
Weak air flow coming out of the vents will need to be checked as well. This could be minor and alleviated simply by changing the air filter, or there could be a more significant repair needed. There are a variety of reasons for these inefficiencies, so it is best to get your unit a tune-up to find out the reasons before they develop into extensive problems.
I had to replace my hvac unit recently. I was very satisfied with every phase of this purchase from the salesman to the installation crew.
I will recommend American Heating and Cooling to all my friends.

It's time for your yearly A/C tune-up
The situations listed are all good indicators that your air conditioning system needs a tune-up.

This will help find problems while they are small, halting them from developing into full blown costly repairs. Taking a proactive approach allows you to combat them quickly. Your HVAC system is a part of the life of your home. Keep the system living longer and performing its best by scheduling maintenance checkups annually with properly trained professionals who can accurately identify any potential problems and also perform preventative maintenance.
