Benefits of Having an AC Tune-Up Before the Summer Heat

You’re probably getting ready for the warmer months ahead of you right about now. Alabamians often take advantage of the fall and winter temperatures. Anything below 80 degrees often feels like a great break from the heat! But now it’s almost time to address any concerns about your air conditioner’s performance from over the last several months. It’s time to consider an AC tune-up and how your home can benefit from one this season. 

Why Do You Need an AC Tune-Up?

Temperatures are Starting to Rise

Alabamians typically think of the “hot” summer season as lasting from June until August. Still, the average temperatures in Central and South Alabama can rise to the high 70s and low 80s starting in the early spring. Bottom line: we run our air conditioners much more frequently than many parts of the country. So it might be time to consider an AC tune-up or HVAC maintenance visit to your home to prepare you for even warmer months ahead.

Your Comfort is Affected by Indoor & Outdoor Air Quality

From smoke or secondhand smoke on the inside of your home to pollen counts on the outside, your air system goes through contaminant filtering and ensures you have high-quality air circulating through your house.  It’s likely your AC works overtime when it is running to make sure you and your family are breathing clean air. 

It’s the Perfect Time to Have a Professional Check Your AC System

Many HVAC technicians are preparing for the busy summer ahead. While it’s still relatively early in the season, you should schedule your checkup, tune-up or maintenance to your AC system. If you like individualized, focused attention, this may be the best time of year to check on your air conditioning unit to ensure it’s working properly. 

Avoid Unwelcome Surprises This Spring

Alabamians in Auburn or Montgomery generally start using their air conditioners full-time in March or April. Getting your air conditioner serviced now will help you avoid unwelcome surprises this spring or summer when you need your AC to be at its best. 

Regular AC Tune-Ups Keep Your Family Safe

If it’s been a while since a professional inspected your air conditioning unit, be sure to schedule an appointment as soon as you can. HVAC maintenance is much more than ensuring the heat or air works fine when you turn either on.  It’s about protecting your family from mold or other contaminants that can affect the health of those living under your roof. 

Take Advantage of Smart Technology & Upgrades

While it’s fairly comfortable outside, it may be the right time to invest in upgrading your home with Smart Technology. Today’s HVAC systems can be controlled with the touch of a button on your phone or tablet, and they can even help save you money or up the resale value of your home.
