Your Air Conditioner Would Like a Massage
So every day your air conditioner faithfully cranks out cold air keeping your home at a comfortable temperature day and night. How many years has it been cranking away? Every year, it gets older, dirtier, and parts get looser or belts get more worn. And just think about that outside unit. It sits out all year long getting dusty and dirty and clogged with pollen and leaves and sometimes even small animals! When’s the last time you did something nice for your air conditioner?
An AC Tune-Up Is Like a Massage Treatment for Your Air Conditioner
When people get run down, a massage or spa treatment usually does the trick to make them feel better. The same thing applies to your air conditioner. Instead of relaxing tight muscles, our technicians lubricate parts to make them move easier. They tighten loose parts so they move more smoothly. The team at Lancaster Brothers follows an extensive checklist to ensure everything is tightened, oiled, and working properly.
They check all electrical connections and motors and they clean any dirty parts so everything feels good again. Ahhh.
Your AC Will Pay You Back
Air Conditioner tune-ups are an absolute must before heading into full-time air conditioner season. They help your AC unit work more efficiently. When your unit is working at its peak efficiency, energy bills are lower. The U.S. Department of Energy reports that heating and cooling costs account for about 48% of the energy use in a typical U.S. home. This percentage makes it the largest energy expense for the average home.
But there are other ways getting a tune-up will pay you back as well.
Avoid Unwanted Breakdowns
Like a car, your air conditioner needs to be tuned up regularly to ensure it operates properly. Our technicians use tune-ups to help identify problem areas with your air conditioner as well. Finding these issues early on and taking care of them sooner rather than later will help you avoid a breakdown on the hottest day of the year.
Extend the Life of Your System
Air conditioners and furnaces are a significant investment for homeowners. Taking care of your equipment with an annual tune-up helps to keep your system in good condition, ensuring that you will get the most out of your investment.
Keep Small Problems from Becoming Costly Ones
Regular tune-ups will catch small problems before they cause larger, more expensive problems. Let’s say your fan blade is loose. Tightening the screws ensures it functions properly and in balance. But, if nothing is done, the constant vibration of a running system will loosen them even further and your fan could come off altogether and do damage to surrounding parts of your AC. Then you’re looking at an expensive repair bill. Ughh.
