Schedule Your AC Tune-Up Today
Spring is here, meaning warmer weather is definitely on its way. When the temperatures rise, a lot of homeowners simply turn on their AC units without scheduling any kind of cleaning, inspection or maintenance checkup. This could end up damaging your unit and making it inefficient, so it could cost you a fair amount of money in the long run if you don’t schedule a spring tune-up today.
Some Important AC Statistics
Heating and cooling currently account for 48% of most homeowners’ overall monthly utility costs. In fact, annual preseason air conditioning tune-ups can improve your AC system’s efficiency while also helping you reduce your energy costs, according to Energy Star. In addition, the buildup from lack of cleaning and properly maintaining your unit could be reducing its efficiency by 5% every year.
Finding any problems now during more bearable New Jersey temperatures is a far cry better than discovering an issue later when the sun is beating down on your home, and you can’t use your AC. Did you know that most homeowners end up spending an average of $165 to $507 to repair their AC units, according to HomeAdvisor.com? So when you compare that to the cost of a service call, a preseason tune-up really sounds like a savvy choice.
An AC unit’s lifespan is completely dependent upon how well it’s maintained. AC systems that are maintained properly should last a good 15 to 20 years, according to the United States Department of Energy. Also, a National Association of Home Builders survey showed that they should usually be lasting about 10 to 15 years.
Are Seasonal Tune-Ups Really Necessary?
Yes, AC systems can always benefit from annual tune-ups. They also decrease your energy use, and that can result in lower energy bills for helping your budget. Tune-ups also help by preventing common AC problems that can prove very costly while also seeming to occur when the weather is at its hottest, making your system work its hardest. You can easily keep your AC unit running a lot longer simply with regular maintenance. Did you know that even simple things like cleaning (or changing) your AC filter quarterly can boost your air conditioner’s efficiency and help it run much longer?
