Why Is an AC Tune Up in Arizona Important?

When the heat starts to rise during an Arizona summer, are you prepared to take the chance that your AC won’t work? Maybe you’re wondering why your energy costs seem to go up year after year despite the fact that you haven’t been changing your habits. For these and other reasons, it’s crucial that you get your AC serviced regularly just like you would your car. After all, with the temperature outside rising, your AC is one of the most important appliances you own, and it needs to be treated accordingly.

What Is an AC Tune-Up?

An AC maintenance check involves an inspection to make sure it’s functioning properly. Then, the coils are cleaned, extra Freon is added, drain lines are flushed, and parts are replaced as needed. The technician will inspect also your AC unit from top to bottom to help spot minor problems before they become bigger than they currently are. All of this helps keep your AC working properly, and should be scheduled and performed on a regular basis.

Why Is an AC Tune-Up Important in Arizona?

AC Tune Up - AZ

Living in Arizona, you know just how hot summers can get. You also probably know that your AC has a big job to do to keep your house comfortable. Regular tune-ups help several things that are important to any household in Arizona.

Reduce Energy Costs

Did you know that dirty coils or a clogged filter can cause your AC to work harder than it needs to in order to cool your home? And that this extra effort translates into higher energy bills for you? Energystar.gov recommends regular tune-ups of your HVAC system to help ensure that it works at peak efficiency, and prevents you from paying too much in energy costs.
Lasts Longer

Let’s face it; a new AC is a big investment, and one that you need to budget for. That’s why regular tune-ups can be so important — they help prolong the life of your AC. By ensuring regular tune-ups, you’re also ensuring the unit is regularly inspected so that problems can be caught before they interfere with function. And making sure that your unit is working at peak efficiency means that it doesn’t overwork itself into an early grave.

Fewer Emergency Repairs

When it’s above 100 degrees outside and your AC stops working, this is an emergency situation that demands you take care of it now, whether it’s in the budget or not. Getting regular tune-ups means that your AC is less likely to stop working suddenly, right when you need it the most. Because tune-ups are less expensive than a new unit or emergency repairs, they’re actually saving you money over the long haul.

Improved Safety

You want your family to stay safe no matter what, and an AC tune-up contributes to their well-being. Leaking Freon or water backing up into your home and promoting mold growth can cause major health issues. Making sure your unit is serviced regularly can prevent these problems from occurring, and can help you catch and deal with any that have already occurred in a timely way, before they can affect your family’s health.

When Should You Get a Tune-Up?

While you can get an AC tune-up at any time of year, the best time to schedule maintenance is right before you turn on your air conditioner in the late spring and early summer. That gives the technician time to find and repair any minor issues before you turn your AC is on for the summer. It also helps guarantee that your AC will be in peak form during super hot Phoenix, AZ summer days. But remember, there’s no bad time to call. If you forgot to get your preseason check up done, it’s better to do it late than never.

Schedule Your Tune-Up Today

Keep your AC running in top form all summer long. Call and schedule your AC tune-up as soon as possible to ensure that you don’t have to face a single day of the hot Arizona summer without it.

I wanted to make sure my air conditioner was ready for summer. Fernando came out and made sure my unit was tip top. He was friendly, professional and not a sales man. Thanks Fernando!
