4 Reasons to Get a Spring Tune-Up for your Air Conditioner

Getting a spring tune up from Getzschman can save your air conditionerSpring is finally here and temperatures outside are rising. Goodbye winter! Although we will still have some evenings here in Omaha where the weather dips into the 40’s it looks like May is promising to bring us days with temperatures rising into the 70s. While we are anxious for sunshine and blue skies, we also want to keep our homes a comfortable temperature. Make sure your AC is ready for spring by scheduling a spring tune-up. Here are four reasons why you should schedule an air conditioning tune-up now before the summer heat hits:

Catch Small Problems before They Become Big (Expensive) Problems

Having an expert look at your equipment in the spring can help catch any little things that might be about to go wrong. Our professional maintenance team will check that your AC is running smoothly and will continue to run smoothly in the foreseeable future. Our technicians can locate any minor (or future potential problems) before they become a big deal. It’s far better for your system (and much cheaper for your wallet) to find and fix any problems before they get worse.

Help Your System Run the Most Efficiently

A tune-up will save you money by helping your unit use less energy. Over the winter, dust and debris can build up on the coils of your air conditioner. This will cause your system to work harder than necessary, thus using too much energy. By cleaning these coils, your system’s fan, and other parts,  your technician will help to increase the operating efficiency of your air conditioner and will ultimately save you money on your monthly energy bill. A clean HVAC system will lead to lower cooling costs.That’s sure to make you and your air conditioner both happy.

Extend Your Air Conditioner’s Lifespan

Air conditioners are not cheap to replace, but with a regular air conditioning tune-up, you can postpone replacing your system for the longest time possible. Coils can become dirty, air filters fill with dirt, and fans can become clogged. If you’ve had your HVAC system for a while, it is likely that there are places inside your system which need a good cleaning. A well-maintained air conditioner should continue to cool your house for a long time. Our technicians are great at estimating how much life your system has left.

Reduce the Chance of Breakdowns

In order to reduce the chance that you’re living without air conditioning in the hottest part of summer, our technicians will check, tighten, lubricate, and repair all the parts and pieces of your system during a tune-up. This will help to align the stars and keep your air conditioner in tip-top shape for summer’s hottest days.
