How often do I need an AC unit tune-up?

March 22, 2019 | Blog

We don’t often put a lot of thought into our AC unit until the temperatures outside start rising or the unit begins to fail. We all have either heard of or experienced the horror stories of AC units going out on the hottest day of the year. Luckily, this nightmare is avoidable by regularly scheduling an AC tune-up. If that horror story didn’t scare you enough, we will give you a few more reason why getting a tune-up is a necessity to the livelihood of your unit.

How old is your unit?

The general rule of thumb when it comes to the frequency of AC tune-ups is once a year. If you have an older unit in your home, however, we recommend getting a tune-up twice a year. The older the unit, the more love and care it needs to ensure it can last you through the warm summer months.

Check the Calendar

It is important to check when your AC unit was last serviced. This will help to determine when you should call your local HVAC company. If you are a new homeowner or just purchased a new unit that has not been serviced before, it is standard to have a tune-up around the start of spring to make sure everything is up and running in time for summer.

The importance of tune-ups

Getting a tune-up on your AC unit is like getting a yearly physical at your doctor. A professional will come out and make sure all the parts of the unit are in working order and make note of anything that needs further service. Depending on the problem, most technicians are likely to fix it during your tune-up. Additionally, a well-working unit is an efficient unit – and an efficient unit is one that saves you money. Your unit might be working twice as hard to cool your home without your knowledge, unnecessarily spending more of your hard-earned money. Calling out an HVAC professional will ensure your unit is giving you the most bang for your buck.
