Air Conditioning Tune Up Necessary

Air Conditioning Tune Up Necessary

One of the most asked questions is whether or not your annual AC tune-up, also known as annual preventative maintenance is necessary.  There are many benefits and reasons why having this done to your air conditioning system is very important.


One thing that a homeowner themselves can do is to make sure to change the air filter regularly, though there are more than just air filters.  Making sure that you have your annual preventative maintenance done can help prevent you from sitting in your home without AC in the middle of the hot and humid summer of Houston, Texas.


When the question pops into your head about whether or not you should schedule that appointment for the tune-up, ask yourself these few questions.


Are you wishing to get the full, expected lifespan of your air conditioner?  Are you wanting to improve the performance and efficiency of your AC equipment?  Do you wish to save money on energy costs?  Is it important for you and your family to be both comfort as well as safe?


If you answered yes to one or more of these, then it is rather important for you to schedule that tune-up appointment.  That tune-up appointment can give you all of these benefits plus more.


Even in Houston, Texas there is a time that our air conditioning units are shut off for a period of time.  During this time, dirt and debris builds up during that time and when you first kick on your AC unit, the coils will burn that off.  The bad thing is that is it’s a large build up, it can cause your cooling system to start operating inefficiently.  Also during this time refrigerant leaks and electrical problems can happen.


Having your HVAC specialist, like Autumn Mechanical, come out and complete the tune-up offers many more benefits.  One of the big ending results is that it will help you save money down the road.  Yes, it will cost you anywhere from $80-$100, but this is small change compared to repair costs if something happens.


It can catch any potential small issues that could lead to something much bigger.  Some issues that can arise can be very small in the beginning and during the routine maintenance, but if left uncheck can lead to much larger problems that are costlier.

It helps increase your AC system’s efficiency and lifespan. AC units last between 10 to 20 years, 12 years on average.  To be able to make it to that time frame, regular maintenance is needed, and could possibly make it last closer to the 20-year mark.


There are many good reasons why having regular maintenance on your air conditioning system is a necessity.  Without scheduling this type of appointment would be neglecting an expensive investment that was made to keep you and your family comfortable.


If your air conditioning system is not operating correctly or is in need of its annual maintenance to prevent potential issues, please contact us today to schedule your appointment.  Do not be strand in the blasting heat of Houston, Texas summer without a cool home.
