What Is a Maintenance Service?
A maintenance and tune-up service is a comprehensive check-up and preparation for your entire air conditioning system. Think of it sort of like a tune-up that a mechanic would perform on your car: changing worn-out components, checking and cleaning others that don’t need to be changed, and investigating for signs of integrity or wear on major components.
Air conditioning maintenance is customized to every customer’s needs based on the equipment that they have installed, but there are a few common things that are done for virtually every system.
Some of these things can include:
- Checking and tightening electrical connections
- Checking refrigerant lines for signs of corrosion or leaks
Cleaning fan blades
- Lubricating motors and moving parts
- Checking and calibrating the thermostat
- Checking the air filter
- Looking for signs of damage or fault in all of a system’s major components
Benefits of a Quality Tune-Up
A quality air conditioning maintenance system provides you with an immense number of benefits in both the short and long term. Here are just a few of them:
- Improved longevity: Annual AC maintenance has been shown to improve the lifespan of an air conditioner for several extra years, meaning better value from your investment
- Better efficiency: A system that is properly-maintained uses less energy, and that means a cooler home without the huge energy bills
- Better reliability: A system that is properly maintained is far, far less likely to break down on you. No more picking up the phone for an urgent fix when your system quits on you.
- Warranty adherence: New HVAC equipment requires you to be up to date on your maintenance in order for the extended warranty terms to remain active. Once-per-year tune-up services keep you compliant with your warranty and keep you protected.
- Huge savings: Between the decreased energy demands, lack of urgent repairs, and improved longevity of your system, you’ll keep a ton of money in your pocket where it belongs.
