5 Reasons You Need a Spring A/C Tune-up

In Alabama, having a working air conditioner is not an option. It’s not even spring yet and already we’ve had a number of warm days. And once the heat hits for good, you won’t want to be without your AC. But does that mean your A/C needs a spring tune-up? Here are five reasons why the answer is yes:

1. Lower Your Cooling Bills

Staying comfortable during the summer often comes at a premium. In fact, Alabama Power estimates that 50% of your home’s energy bill comes from heating and cooling. When you’re A/C system is having to work harder than it really needs to do the same amount of cooling, your cooling bills show it.

But when your system can work efficiently, it won’t need to run as long or as often. This is one of the easiest ways to save on your energy costs each month, and those savings add up fast.

2. Never Sacrifice Your Comfort

You might not need to flip the cooling switch just yet. But when you do, you expect your system to fire up the first time and start pumping out relief. For many homeowners, this won’t be the case.

It’s been months since you last needed your A/C in Alabama, and a lot can happen to it while it’s sitting dormant. Debris can clog your system. Parts may fail. Or, your A/C might work fine for the first few weeks of spring, then sputter when you need it most.

A spring A/C tune-up can help to avoid all of the above so there’s no disruption to your comfort. Get uninterrupted cooling by taking care of problems now before the summer heatwaves hit.

3. Prolong the Life of Your A/C Unit

A spring tune-up is part of good HVAC maintenance. A well-maintained system will usually last much longer, which reduces your total cost of homeownership.

Research shows that the average A/C unit can range between $1,200 to $4,500 or more. And that doesn’t even account for installation costs, which can be about the same price as the unit itself. Your A/C unit should last between 15-20 years, but if you can get even just a few extra years out of your unit with good maintenance, you can save yourself thousands of dollars over the life of your home.

4. Avoid Small Issues Becoming Costly Problems

A/C units experience wear and tear over time, just like any other part of your home. A small crack or malfunction in a part or a pinhole in a hose will only get worse over time. Eventually, it can impact the entire function of your A/C system and disrupt your comfort when you need it most.

What’s more, larger problems take more time and are more expensive to fix than small issues. A tune-up can spot these issues early and address them so you don’t end up paying more than you really need to.

5. Improve Your Air Quality

It’s been months since you last needed your A/C system. In the meantime, months of dust, debris, and gunk have built up inside it. Cleaning is a big part of a spring A/C tune-up, ensuring all that buildup doesn’t find its way into your home’s indoor air.
