Your A/C system is something that functions (hopefully well) all year long and you probably do not give it much thought as long as it works.  But, just like anything else in your home, it requires maintenance if you want it to continually run properly and efficiently so that you maximize the lifespan of your A/C system.  One of the best things you can do for your A/C unit is to schedule an A/C tune-up service with an experienced HVAC service provider.

If you are unfamiliar with an A/C tune-up service, they are something that can be performed quarterly, semi-annually, annually, after construction, or whenever you think your system could use it.  A/C tune-up service helps your system run more effectively and efficiently while also helping prevent potential problems from arising.  While not all tune-up services are created equal and some are certainly not as thorough, a high-quality A/C has certain things it should include.

An A/C system tune-up will include things like visual inspection of your A/C system components, an inspection of indoor ducts, replacement of filters, an inspection of fuses and circuit, an inspection of electrical connections, lubrication of moving parts, an inspection of drain lines, a test of the heat exchange, and a test of the thermostat to ensure that it functions properly.  Technicians not only will perform all aforementioned inspections and services but will fine-tune any other areas that need improvement to maximize performance and inform the homeowner of any suggested repairs if needed.  Keep your A/C system running efficiently and extend the lifespan of your system with a professional A/C system tune-up.
