Why You Need Annual Maintenance
Getting a tune up will contribute to the health of your AC unit and the health of your home overall. The following are some of the reasons why you should get an annual tune up:
Improved Air Quality
One of your Ocean Isle Beach, NC, HVAC unit’s most important jobs is keeping your air clean. When you get your tune up, your technician will ensure that your unit is in good health. That means the air conditioning system can circulate clean air throughout your Ocean Isle Beach home like it’s supposed to.
Save on Repairs in the Long Run
Because an annual tune up is part of regular maintenance, it will help you stop small problems in their tracks. You can stop them before they become too large to fix. If you let issues get away from you, they may lead to costly repairs and replacements.
Your AC unit uses a lot of energy to keep you home cool. But if your unit is in good health, it will operate smoothly and be more energy-efficient. This means you’ll use less energy over time. You’ll likely save money on your energy bills as a result.
Extended Air Conditioner Lifespan
When you maintain your air conditioner and get an annual tune up, you are putting in the work that will extend the lifespan of your unit. You’re less likely to experience a breakdown and will enjoy many more years out of your air conditioner, which also saves you money.
When Should I Schedule AC System Maintenance?
Many North Carolina homeowners wonder how often they should get a tune up and when. Typically, you should have AC maintenance performed about once a year, if possible. This type of service can be done at any point in the year.
But, it’s a good idea to get it done in early spring. This ensures that your unit is ready to go before the temperatures rise for late spring and summer. Regardless of when it happens during the year, make it a priority.
The average tune up doesn’t take long to complete. Depending on your home and the state of your unit, the inspection may last one to two hours. With A+ Heating & Cooling – Electrical, it’s easy to schedule our services to fit within your busy day. Our technicians are prompt and professional.
