Spring is a Great Time of Year to Schedule an Air Conditioner Tune UpPublished: April 24, 2013
It’s spring here in the St. Louis Metro East area! Although many of us haven’t turned on our air conditioners for the first time this year, now is the perfect time to get your cooling system ready for the summer’s heat. What’s the best way to do that? Schedule an air conditioner tune up with Tiger!
What goes into an air conditioner tune up?
When you schedule an air conditioner tune up with Tiger, we’ll send one of our technicians to your home to get your unit ready for the cooling season. During the tune-up, we will inspect your entire cooling system and make note of any problems that are affecting its safety, efficiency or performance.
Along with an inspection, we’ll perform all of the necessary maintenance tasks (such as a thorough system cleaning) required to bring your system up to its peak performance. After finishing your tune-up, we’ll talk with you about any problems that we find and make any suggestions for repairs or improvements.
What are the benefits of getting an annual tune up during springtime?
- Reduces the risk of breakdowns this summer. There’s no good time for your air conditioner to break down, but you’ll probably agree that it can’t happen at a worse time than in the middle of summer. By getting a tune up during spring, you’ll have plenty of time to fix any problems with your air conditioner that might have led to a breakdown a few months down the line.
- Cuts down on your energy bills. A tune up will bring your air conditioner up to its peak operating efficiency, which will cut down on its operating costs. The earlier in the year that you get your tune up, the more you’ll be able to take advantage of this benefit.
- Takes care of small problems before they become big problems. Small problems with your HVAC system rarely stay small for long. Instead, the typically get worse the longer they are ignored. Spring is a great time to take care of problems with your air conditioner because you’re not yet using it every day and you can catch small problems before they develop into expensive repairs in the months to come.
- Extends the life of your air conditioner. You wouldn’t go years without changing the oil in your car, so why would you skip out on annual maintenance for your air conditioner? By getting an annual tune-up, you can keep your air conditioner healthy and greatly extend its operating life.
