Tips for AC Maintenance

Most experienced homeowners would agree that regular AC maintenance is paramount to keeping their system functioning at its best and for saving money on utility bills. Tune-ups extend the life of your AC in the long-term and save you money on costly repairs in the short-term. However, many homeowners are hesitant about their standard maintenance visit because they are unsure of what to expect.

We’ve compiled the top tips for AC maintenance to keep you informed on the basics of a typical tune-up.

  • Without proper maintenance, you can lose up to 5% in efficiency each year. Make sure to change your filters and schedule a tune-up annually.
  • Technicians will check coils, capacitors, compressors, and coolant levels. Expect your technician to explain all of the metrics, and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
  • The average tune-up costs between $75 and $100.
  • You can lower your repair costs dramatically by signing up for a maintenance program.

Unlike many other appliances in your home, your air conditioner is a machine you rarely think about until you absolutely need it. Make sure you’re never caught in the heat or cold due to lack of maintenance. After all, this yearly ritual is crucial to your family’s comfort.

We offer a full-service maintenance program that can bring you peace of mind, no matter the season. Visit our maintenance page more information on maintenance programs, or give us a call at (949) 245-6320.
