Like many household appliances, most people don’t notice their air conditioning much until something goes wrong. The secret to longevity and comfort is regular and thorough maintenance. In this post, we’ll discuss why it’s always a good idea to have your A/C checked out, and what it will mean for you, your family, and your wallet.

TUNE UP TIME

Sometimes, it’s obvious when you need to call a repairman. If your HVAC isn’t running properly, you want relief! Or maybe your power bills seem to be skyrocketing for no obvious reason. The key to avoiding these often expensive repairs is by investing in regular tune-ups. We recommend twice a year, once for the A/C and once for the heat.

WARRANTIES

City Plumbing offers a variety of HVAC units in various brands and styles. Many come with manufacturer warranties. But that doesn’t mean you should just ignore the unit until it’s time to be replaced. The warranty may be void if the unit wasn’t maintained properly. Not only will a tune-up ensure the warranty, but it will also keep the system running strong so you won’t need to replace it any sooner than needed.

LONG LIFE

That brings us to our next point. An HVAC that’s neglected will likely need to be replaced by its 10th birthday. However, a twice-a-year checkup should make it last 15 years or longer. This is because maintenance will prevent harmful wear and tear that will eventually take its toll.

AIR QUALITY

Your HVAC is designed to keep the air at a comfortable temperature in your home – but it has another purpose as well: keeping the air clean. The air is filtered each time it runs through your system, which removes particles like dust and other harmful contaminants. Regular tune-ups will not only keep you comfortable, but they’ll also keep you healthy by providing clean air!
