Why you need an A/C tune-up before summer wreaks havoc on your system

Even with summer still a few months away, the humidity and daily temperatures in Alabama have already been on the rise. No matter where you reside, a properly maintained and working A/C unit is critical for your comfort and finances. The best way to ensure your A/C unit is working correctly is through an annual A/C tune-up.

While an A/C tune-up may feel like an extra expense, homeowners find tune-ups extremely beneficial in the long run. At Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air, our expert technicians provide the thorough maintenance that your HVAC unit needs to keep it running smoothly all summer long.


Do I need an A/C tune-up?

 

A/C tune-ups provide benefits


In general, routine HVAC maintenance protects your air conditioning system from a build-up of hidden problems while keeping your unit operating at peak efficiency. When it comes to A/C tune-ups, these annual maintenance inspections identify potential problems early and save you money in repairs. When a problem is found during an A/C tune-up, it’s more affordable and less disruptive to complete the repair pre-season instead of during the peak of summer.

Additionally, A/C tune-ups help extend the life of your air conditioning unit. By receiving routine cleaning and maintenance, you save your HVAC from wear and tear that can result in significant problems and unit replacement.


Call Dixie’s A/C tune-up inspection


While there are some aspects of maintenance you can do on your own, such as changing your air filter, there are many advantages to hiring a seasoned and trained technician to perform an annual maintenance check on your air conditioner.

When a Call Dixie technician arrives, you will receive a full-service tune-up based on our technician’s standardized A/C tune-up checklist.

Our A/C tune-up includes the following tasks:

  • Change the air filter.
  • Clean the indoor unit.
  • Check all electrical connections.
  • Check the refrigerant level.
  • Verify condensate is draining correctly.
  • Test thermostat.
  • Clean outdoor condenser.
  • Make a test run.

By properly cleaning, inspecting, and testing your HVAC unit, your Call Dixie technician will relay the state of your air conditioning unit and make suggestions on how to best take care of it throughout the summer months.

 

Best times to schedule an A/C tune-up


Ultimately, the worst time to repair your HVAC unit is when you need it the most. By the time summer rolls around, you don’t want to be dealing with A/C unit problems. Instead, you want any problems addressed and taken care of by a professional earlier in the season. Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air recommends homeowners schedule A/C tune-ups during the spring months, which is the optimal time for any service or repairs before the summer heat wreaks havoc on your system.

Also, Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air offers a Dixie Cares Plan, a plan that provides whole-home maintenance throughout the year for your electric, plumbing, heating and air systems. With priority service, cost savings, and lifetime warranties, our Dixie Cares Plan provides a safe and comfortable home with a thorough and highly customer-rated routine maintenance plan.
