Omaha summers can get pretty hot. If you don’t want to be a victim of the heat, get your air conditioner tuned up now. Need more convincing? Here are several good reasons to seek maintenance before the summer hits:
The Beginning of the Season Is the Busiest
Once the heat wave hits, everybody’s system is running at capacity and that’s when they tend to break down. That means that air conditioning companies are all busy and you may not be able to get same-day service. Don’t get stuck in the miserable and uncomfortable heat waiting for a busy technician to eventually get to your house. Call now and get your AC tuned-up today from one of our air conditioner specialists.
Time Off Isn’t Necessarily Good for Your AC
When an AC unit sits idly for months, you may think that it’s resting and that’s good for it. In reality, while it’s resting, it’s also collecting dirt and debris. Dirty parts can cause unnecessary wear and tear on the components which can reduce its efficiency costing you extra money in the long run. A clean system is more efficient.
Tune-Ups Extend the Life of Your AC
The proper care and maintenance of an AC system involves much more than merely cleaning the unit. Let one of our highly-trained technicians clean, lubricate, tighten, check electrical connections and make sure all is working as it should. This will ultimately extend the life of your air conditioner and considering the cost of replacement, that alone is worth it.
Reduce the Chance of Breakdowns
We can’t promise that your system won’t ever have trouble, but by having annual maintenance, you greatly reduce the chance of breakdowns happening. We tend to catch any small problems early and prevent them from becoming big problems later. Plus, your system will run as efficiently as possible which saves you money on your energy bills.
What to Expect from a Tune-Up
A tune-up includes many steps, but basically, we clean the system, check all the parts, make adjustments and ensure that everything is working properly. Our tune-ups include:
- Checking the air filter and replacing it if necessary
- Cleaning the air vents and testing them for mold
- Adjusting the blower
- Inspecting the evaporator and components
- Calibrating the thermostat
- Tightening loose parts
- Checking electrical connections
- Lubricating moving components
