At Axberg, our goal is to help our customers make the most out of the mechanical systems in their homes. That’s why we offer a number of services designed to help homeowners be proactive about caring for their systems. One of those services is our air conditioning tune-up service. Yet we also know that it can be hard to see the need to invest in maintenance when nothing’s wrong with your system. So, do you need an air conditioning tune-up, or can you skip this appointment this year? Here are some questions you can ask yourself to determine if you need a tune-up.

Has Your System Run Recently?

In the spring, the answer to this question is almost always “no.” Rockford’s winters can be brutal, and even in mild winters, you’re not going to need to use your air conditioner. This means that it sits untouched and dormant for four to six months. During that time, dust and debris will collect in the system, and other problems can develop. A tune-up gives a skilled HVAC technician the chance to check things over and figure out if there are any serious problems that have developed.

Do You Want to Lower Your Energy Bills?

A system left to its own devices gradually becomes more and more inefficient. A tune-up helps calibrate the system so that it runs at its best possible level. If you want your system to be more efficient so you can enjoy reliable cooling without increased energy bills, then it’s time to invest in maintenance. Obviously, lowering your energy bills is a great goal for everyone, and investing in maintenance can make this happen for you.

Do You Want Costly Breakdowns?

No one has time for an air conditioning breakdown. Either you miss work and other responsibilities to wait for your HVAC technician to arrive or you pay for emergency repair services. While Axberg is here for you offering flexible repair scheduling, the best option is to avoid the need for repair altogether. Regular maintenance can help you find problems before they start, so you can take measures to prevent a breakdown.

As you can see, there are many reasons why you do need to invest in an air conditioning tune-up. As the old adage says, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and investing in preventive maintenance will bring financial rewards.
