Over time, dust and dirt can build up in your air conditioner, lowering its performance and its efficiency and making it more expensive to cool your home. An air-conditioning tune-up can help you determine what’s going on, make sure your system has no problems, and ensure its operating at maximum efficiency.
Is it time for an Air Conditioning Tune-up?
It’s never been inspected. If you can’t remember the last time your air conditioner was inspected, then a tune-up can likely help. Dirt dust and even mold can build up in your air conditioner and in your ducts, making your air conditioner run less efficiently. Every year you run your AC without cleaning or maintenance, it gets a little less efficient. If you’ve never had it checked or can’t remember the last time you had your system checked, it’s likely time for a tune-up.
Your energy bills are too high. If your air conditioner has to work too hard to cool your home, then your energy bills are going to go up. If your bills are suddenly soaring, are much higher than usual or your air conditioner seems to be running all the time, it might be time for a tune-up. Regular maintenance can help your air conditioner run as efficiently as possible, lowering your energy costs.
The air smells bad. If the air in your home smells musty, moldy or has a sour odor, your air conditioner could be to blame. Moisture can build up in your system and be blown throughout your home along with the cool air. The resulting odor is more than annoying; the mold causing the odor could actually damage your health and is particularly dangerous for anyone with asthma or allergies.
Your home is not cool. If your air conditioner is constantly running but your home is never cool, a tune-up can help. You’re paying to run the air conditioner, even though it’s not cooling your home; by getting a tune-up you can be sure that you’re paying for something you’re actually enjoying.
