Understanding the Value and Importance of Yearly Air Conditioner Inspections and Tune-Ups

Last updated 5 years ago

An air conditioner inspection can improve your unit’s ability to cool your home during the hotter months. To save money on cooling this summer, have your air conditioner checked out before turning it back on:

  • Improve Air Conditioner Performance

Your air conditioner stands to lose anywhere from 5% to 20% of its potential peak performance without regular maintenance. A preseason inspection once a year will ensure that your air conditioner isn’t wasting energy and is cooling your home effectively. 

  • Protect Your Unit from Breakdowns

An annual inspection of fluids, cooling elements, and fan controls can help prevent common problems with your air conditioner. It’s often much more expensive to repair a broken air conditioner than to tune-up a working one ahead of time.

  • Save Money and Resources

There are many ways that an air conditioner checkup can save you money. An inspector, for example, will clean and repair the parts of your cooling system that prevent it from running its best. He or she will check the air filters, coils, refrigerant levels, fuses, compressor, fan controls, and thermostat sensor, among other things. These services will increase the efficiency of your unit, thereby decreasing your cooling bills.  

  • Enjoy Better Air Quality

Your air conditioner may have picked up dirt and debris blown around during the fall and winter seasons. These foreign particles can limit your air conditioner’s ability to blow air effectively around your home and affect your indoor air quality. An air conditioning inspector will remove any dirt and debris that have collected inside your unit during the off-season and keep these particles from circulating inside your home.
