How Often Should You Get an AC Tune-Up?

The surge of cooling and heating companies advertising their tune-up services each year may sound like a sales gimmick, but HVAC maintenance is incredibly important. Regularly having preventative maintenance done on your AC can have lasting benefits for its health, and HVAC companies want your AC system to be healthy. Let’s talk about how often and when you need to get an AC tune-up.

Spring AC Tune-Ups

If you receive home service ads, whether they’re on social media or through the mail, you might get bombarded with HVAC maintenance ads in the spring. That’s because spring is the perfect time for your AC tune-up. You’ll want to schedule a tune-up every year in the spring before the weather gets too warm so that your AC is prepared for the strain of summer. Having a tune-up done before it gets too hot outside will help prevent unexpected breakdowns throughout the summer.

Do I really need a tune-up every year?

As always, no one is going to force you to have AC services like tune-ups done. However, a yearly tune-up is essential in order to keep your air conditioner working well for longer, which is a wise choice considering the cost of replacing an air conditioning system. A lot can happen to your AC in a year that you don’t notice, especially if it hasn’t needed any repairs, so tune-ups act as yearly check-ins to make sure your system is operating as efficiently as possible.

Benefits of Regular Maintenance

Most homeowners need to see a difference when they pay for services like tune-ups. This is difficult to do when your air conditioner is designed to be as invisible and low-maintenance as possible on a day-to-day basis. However, tune-ups offer several short and long term benefits for your AC, including:

  • Increasing energy efficiency
  • Catching repairs before they cause more problems
  • Reducing the risk of inconvenient breakdowns
  • Extending the life of your AC

You read the last bullet right! Proper maintenance means higher efficiency and fewer repairs, which can extend the life of your AC. Keeping your air conditioner in top condition throughout its life pays in the end.
