Do I Really Need an A/C Tune-Up Every Year?

If you have central air conditioning or a ductless mini-split A/C system, you’ve probably heard all about air conditioning tune-ups. Your energy provider reminds you about it every spring, but how necessary is it really? Is it critical, like an oil change or a dental cleaning, or more of a recommendation that doesn’t need a top spot on your to-do list? Well, the short answer is: Yes, you really do need an A/C tune-up every year. Read this blog post to find out why.

Top 5 Reasons to Schedule an A/C Tune-Up Every Spring

Spring is the best time to book an A/C tune-up because you want to give your equipment a little TLC before it starts working hard in the summer. Make sure you book your tune-up to enjoy these benefits:

1. Be prepared for the start of warm weather

In Massachusetts, you never know when the first heatwave of the season will hit. Contacting your energy company for your air conditioning tune-up in the spring will make sure that your air conditioner is ready to rock when temperatures start to climb. During your tune-up, your technician will perform preventative maintenance and can identify any minor issues before they become major problems.

2. Avoid midsummer breakdowns

Customers that have a spring A/C tune-up are less likely to deal with mid-season breakdowns. You’ll reduce the risk of losing A/C in the middle of the summer and avoid paying for potentially expensive repairs, too.

3. Extend your equipment’s lifespan

Your air conditioning system is an investment! Make sure it is properly cared for so that it can last as long as possible. Maintenance performed by your technician during the tune-up will help your air conditioning system work efficiently for years to come.

4. Increase efficiency and lower energy costs

Speaking of efficiency, that’s another major benefit of booking a yearly A/C tune-up. Air conditioning systems that are maintained by an HVAC professional work more efficiently, which results in lower summer energy bills.

5. Save your spot on the schedule

If everyone in your neighborhood is as wise as you are, they’ll be booking A/C tune-ups this spring, too. It’s a good idea to call your energy company early so that they can get your tune-up into their schedule in advance. That way, you won’t have to deal with the last-minute rush and get an appointment time that is convenient for you. It’s also important to know that some energy companies have a cut-off date for spring tune-ups because it becomes unsafe for technicians to perform tune-ups in the summer heat.
