Why do an air conditioning tune up?
Air conditioning manufacturers recommend annual inspections and maintenance by a qualified heating and cooling technician. Many include language mandating in their warranties that damage to the units caused by improper maintenance is not covered under warranty.
Besides the recommendation by your manufacturer, a professional air conditioning tune-up will ensure the proper function of your unit throughout the summer months. Proper function means efficient use of energy and a great cut to your energy bills. Most tune-ups end up paying for themselves on energy savings alone!
When is it best to get this service?
As expected, it is best to get your air conditioning unit tuned before the heating season begins but not too early as several aspects of the service can be performed only once the thawing begins. Essentially the best time would be from March to May. It can be recommended to get also your furnace inspected at the same time to save you a second visit by the technician later during the year!
