It’s hot outside, and the last thing you want is your air conditioner quitting on you in the middle of the night. Don’t wait until the worst happens: instead, be proactive and plan ahead with an AC tune-up. As we covered in March, AC maintenance is one of the easiest things that homeowners can do to keep their system running right. Here are three more major benefits of an AC tune-up from the experts at King Heating and Cooling.
Better energy efficiency
Have you noticed that your electricity bills this summer have been similar to the temperatures outside: climbing up and up, with no relief in sight? There might be a correlation between skipping your AC tune-up and your higher bills. Without annual maintenance, your air conditioner will continually lose efficiency as dust and other contaminants build up in the system and air leaks appear.
However, an AC tune-up from the professionals at King can help you restore efficiency to your system. Over the course of a summer, a tune-up can lead to major savings on your electricity bills. If you’ve been suffering energy bill sticker shock, give King a call. Our NATE-certified technicians will treat your air conditioner right and make sure it’s operating at maximum efficiency.
Improve your indoor air quality
Now that we’ve discussed how the buildup of dust and pollutants in your air conditioner could have a negative impact on your system’s energy efficiency, let’s discuss another impact. Dust, dirt, and pollutants can clog your system’s filter over time. Without the cleaning or filter change that comes as part of AC maintenance from King, your system will eventually send material into your home’s air via the ductwork. That’s pollutants and dust that you have to breathe in. Consider this: you spend a large amount of time—including your sleep—in your home. It’s one thing to inhale such materials on your 15-minute commute; it’s another thing entirely to breathe in pollution during your nine hours of rest.
If you have allergies or are sensitive to dust from the outside, an AC tune-up might help to remove the amount of pollutants entering your home. In combination with other services—such as air duct cleaning—AC maintenance can really help you breathe easier.
Get more performance from your system
Is your current cooling spotty, with one room feeling like an icebox and another feeling like it might as well be outside in the heat? This might be caused by your air conditioner needing a tune-up. Thanks to the wear placed on parts or the buildup of dust, your system might not only be compromised in terms of energy efficiency, but might have—overall—less cooling power. Sans maintenance, you’re effectively paying more for less air conditioning.
