Too Late To Get An A/C Tune-up?

Is it Ever Too Late To Get An AC Tuneup?

When summer comes, many of us so often rely on our air conditioning units. Have you put off air conditioning maintenance this year? Figure you might as well just wait until next year to call for an AC Tuneup? You’ll be happy that you didn’t delay!

Skipping air conditioner maintenance is a common mistake, but it is never too late for proper maintenance. Air conditioning maintenance is important as it includes a thorough inspection, cleaning, and adjustment of your unit to make sure it operates effectively and functionally. 

Why is it not too late for an A/C tune-up?

You should maintain your air conditioner annually. However, consistency and frequency of regular maintenance matter more than the timing. As August is the hottest month of the year, especially in hot and humid Tennessee, we still have much of the summer remaining, where many homeowners will be using their air conditioning units. 

By delaying maintenance, your air conditioning unit actually has to work harder to cool your home. Each year without proper checkups or tune-ups, your system can lose about 5% of its efficiency, which ends up resulting in a higher air conditioning bill each month. We recommend trying to stay on top of your regular maintenance, but if you’re behind, don’t fret! It is not too late. The sooner you can get an AC tune-up, the more efficient your cooling system will run and be able to save you money in the long run.

System Breakdowns

The last thing any homeowner wants is for their air conditioner to break down at the hottest time of the year. During the hottest months of the summer, your air conditioner should be in tip-top shape to function properly so you, your pets, and your family can remain calm and cool!

Regular maintenance can help you avoid costly repairs over the course of the lifetime of your unit. During a regular AC Tune-Up, you will be notified of potential problems or things that should be addressed, such as small repairs or component replacements. By proactively managing these small repairs, homeowners can prevent long-term, costly and large-scale problems with their air conditioning unit. Long-term or delayed, or ignored maintenance for your AC unit can end up leaving homeowners with a hefty bill.
