It’s the time of year for spring cleaning. While you work on dusting and finally moving those holiday decorations into storage, don’t forget about your air conditioning system. Not only does it need annual cleaning, but it also needs a general tune-up. The best people to call for both? King Heating and Cooling of south Chicago.
Here are some of the benefits to scheduling your AC tune-up this spring:
Greater energy efficiency this summer
Along with heat and humidity, summer can bring about high energy bills that cost you and your family hard-earned paychecks. An unmaintained AC system is a less efficient one, meaning that skipping the tune-up could really cost you. As dust and other pollutants build up on the coils and in the ducts, it blocks cooling and makes your air conditioner work harder for less cooling output. Your AC could cost you money every single month.
Instead, schedule your AC tune-up with King. Our industry-certified technicians will have your system operating at peak efficiency for the rest of the summer. You’ll see the energy savings on every bill.
Lessened chance of a system breakdown
No one likes having their air conditioner break down in the middle of the summer. Yet, that’s when it’s likeliest to do just that: after all, there are some days where it’s running nearly 24-7! If your AC does go down, King can help with that. But, if you’re looking for a way to prevent the need for repairs in the first place, consider getting an AC tune-up with us.
In fact, up to 80% of all repairs can be avoided altogether with regular maintenance. It’s one of the reasons that a tune-up is most effective in the spring, before summer arrives. If there’s something not quite right with your air conditioner—such as grime buildup on the coils or a loose bolt—our trained technicians can catch it before it becomes a crisis.
Keep your manufacturer’s warranty intact
Many air conditioning manufacturers actually stipulate in their warranty agreement that the system needs to have a certified technician look at it every year. Otherwise, the warranty is considered voided, and you’ll no longer be able to benefit from the perk should your air conditioner break down in the years after. Schedule your AC maintenance with King Heating and Cooling to keep your warranty intact.
Help your system live longer
Most air conditioning systems last between 15-20 years, depending on the make and model, how often it was used, and—most importantly—what kind of maintenance it has received. Annual tune-ups not only improve your system’s energy efficiency and help prevent breakdowns. They can also benefit your air conditioner in the long term, by giving it a chance at a longer life.
A system with years of dust and grime built up in it has to work harder, which results in even greater wear-and-tear on the machine. Plus, not replacing failing parts puts the entire air conditioner at risk of being damaged. An AC tune-up won’t make your home’s system last forever, but it will give it better odds at a longer life.
