How Often Do You Need A Tune-Up?

June 6, 2022 | Blog

Through every season of weather – your AC unit is a lifeline. Between the heat, humidity, and freezing temperatures that come every year, your heating and cooling system are invaluable tools in creating a comfortable atmosphere within your home.

At Ace Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we want you and your family to feel at ease in your space, no matter what the conditions are like outside. However, the only way to truly feel at ease about your HVAC system is to ensure it gets professional maintenance when necessary. Continue reading to learn how often you should really have HVAC maintenance done!

How Often You Really Need AC Maintenance

A neglected HVAC can become less energy-efficient and break down as it struggles to function properly. Scheduling a regular tune-up for your unit is part of being a good homeowner, but how do you know when your AC needs servicing? And how often should you make an appointment to ensure that you have a healthy system without wasting too much money?

Annual Seasonal AC Tune-ups

Don’t let the thought of yearly maintenance overwhelm you! Creating a tune-up schedule is quick and easy. In order to keep your HVAC running smoothly for you and your family, establishing a service date twice a year is critical.

When you make an appointment with one of our technicians, you are protecting your AC in advance, preventing the severe summer heat and chilly winter temperatures from damaging your machinery.

The Best Time Of Year For Maintenance

The spring is a great season to get a check-up done because it reduces the risk of a summertime breakdown that could leave your home stuffy, hot and uncomfortable. Preventative maintenance minimizes the chances of your HVAC running less than optimally when you need it the most. Our professionals are skilled at finding parts that need replacing so that your unit isn’t overworked during the hottest time of the year.

During the fall, our staff members focus on tuning up your heater, so that it’s prepared to combat the bitter cold. Just like your AC, your heater also needs examining for vulnerable parts in order to serve you well in extreme temperatures.

What’s Included In A Tune-Up?

At Ace Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we prioritize attention to detail when adjusting your air conditioning system. Servicing your unit is a complex and multi-faceted project that includes:

  • Identify and replace weak parts
  • Clean out dust and debris
  • Recalibrate dysfunctional components
  • Tighten loose pieces
  • Lubricate and treat rusty parts
  • Check electricity connections
  • Search for signs of corrosion
  • Inspect your blower, condenser, and ductwork
  • Examine your thermostat

Our inspection of the moving pieces and parts in your unit is to prevent the inconvenience of a broken AC in the future. Tune-ups are vital for the performance and lifespan of your machine so that you can enjoy comfortable airflow in your home no matter the season.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Friendly and Honest

Technician came out to my house within an hour of calling and he was very friendly and honest. I was expecting to have to replace the whole unit or have a salesman try to have me “upgrade” to a newer unit but Mr Jeff was quick to diagnose and correct the problem at a reasonable cost.

Megan M.

Excellent Service!

We called Ace on a Sunday. Several hours later a serviceman arrived, inspected the air conditioner, and got it working. The serviceman was quite knowledgeable. Excellent service!

Diane B.

Highly Recommended

Jace went out of his way to get my air conditioner repaired so that my home would be comfortable for the weekend. He was extremely polite and professional. I highly recommend ACE as a company and Jace as a technician. I could not have been more pleased with the service I received.
