This year, the groundhog saw his shadow, predicting another six weeks of winter. For once, he was right! Um… you may have noticed that we’ve suffered through more than six more weeks of cold weather since then. Like most of us, you’re probably ready to open the windows and get fresh air coming into the house. Especially with the mild weather that’s coming our way next week.
It appears it’s finally time to enjoy the mild weather and fresh air. Sadly for most HVAC contractors, there is a lull in the action this time of year.

Why Should You Perform Routine Maintenance on Your AC? Our experience is that routine maintenance on an air conditioner repays itself quickly. Following is a list of ways you’ll save by getting your service handled now:
Improve the efficiency of your AC system. Our air conditioning tune-up and checkout includes testing, adjust key components, and cleaning the entire system to ensure top performance when the extreme temps arrive. AC systems age and lose efficiency over time. An AC system that isn’t maintained will become inefficient faster. Optimizing your system’s efficiency and you’ll reduce utility bills, plus your home will cool down faster.
Eliminate any surprises or service calls that could rack up a big bill. You can avoid most major system failures (and expenses) by implementing a maintenance program. Keep up maintenance on your AC with annual service and you’ll be ahead of the game.
A little fix now can prevent huge problems later. As you may know, AC systems are very complex systems. Tiny problems are simple to catch when they’re small. Untended, they grow into serious, expensive problems. It sometimes seems that surprises crop up, even when your air conditioning is running fine. An annual tune and checkout will allow us to catch those little problems early, saving you dollars and headaches later.
Give your Air Conditioner the Gift of a Long Life. With any major mechanical equipment, it’s always a case of “pay me now or pay me later.” Any delay in routine maintenance can take its toll and shorten the useful life of the AC system. When you take care of your AC properly, you can extend the life of your air conditioner. The potential to save thousands in replacement costs is huge during the years you own the home.
Plan the Future Replacement. No air conditioner system lasts forever. At some point in the future, you’ll have to replace your air conditioner. Having the system checked by a professional AC technician, you can have a conversation about the replacement timetable well before you’ll need to. Planning for this inevitable event years ahead of schedule will help you save up the cash and position yourself to take advantage of big sales and cash discounts.
Homeowners can perform some of their own HVAC maintenance, like changing filters on a regular basis. When it comes to proper AC tune-ups, it’s best left to the pros.
Too many things can go wrong if someone with no experience attempts to do their own AC tune-up. Cleaning the condenser is one of the most basic parts of the tune-up. Sure, you can do it yourself, but we really recommend leaving it to a trained service tech. It’s just simply too easy to damage fins or coils in the system. Bent or damaged fins could reduce the AC system’s performance. There is also a danger of electrical shock for someone who doesn’t work on mechanical and electrical systems every day.
The trained eye of a professional service tech could spot small issues that someone without the experience might miss. When you go ahead with an air conditioner tune-up and checkout, don’t forget to ask about the longevity of your system. How much longer will your system last?
