In the middle of our HOT Florida summers, the worst thing that could happen is an HVAC breakdown! Just like you maintain your car to keep it running smoothly, you should maintain your cooling system. The good news is – with regularly scheduled tune-ups, you will significantly decrease the chances of experiencing any unexpected repairs or total breakdowns!
It’s easy for normal wear and tear to build up and cause damage to your system. It may continue to function for a while but even minor problems will eventually wear the system down, requiring you to replace it earlier than expected. When the inside is cleaned out and your parts are tuned-up regularly, your cooling system will efficiently add comfort and cool air to your home for a longer amount of time.
A tune-up can uncover other parts of your system that need to be readjusted, repaired or replaced. This is good for homeowners because a technician is already at your home working on your system, and these repairs can then be completed very easily. Without a tune-up, you’ll eventually just notice that something is wrong with your system because it’s not giving you the same level of comfort as it usually does. In this case, the issue would have lingered longer and cause more damage to other parts of your system.
Tune-ups even help to improve your home’s air quality. All of the grime within your system will be cleaned out and your air filter will be replaced. When the inside is cleaned, your cooling system will run more effectively when it comes to limiting humidity and achieving your desired temperature. Air filters can accumulate dust and other debris, so cleaning or replacing these is necessary because, if you don’t, all of your home’s air will be forced to pass through this build up.
When you book a tune-up, the services are happening on your schedule. When you skip your tune-up and your system breaks down, you’re forced to work on your system’s schedule. Calling out of work to wait for a last minute repair in a toasty home is not how anyone wants to spend a hot summer day. Planning ahead by scheduling a tune-up will ensure that your system is in tip-top shape for the hot, summer season!
Fortunately, tune-ups are pretty affordable when it comes to HVAC systems whereas repairs and replacement can be costly. Tune-ups are a great way to discover minor issues early on and can prevent major repairs. Even if something with your system is off, you will be able to remedy these for a much lower cost if it is discovered during routine maintenance opposed to if it has already begun affecting your cooling system’s performance.
