The Benefits of a Summer Tune-Up

While the air is still brisk, spring is right around the corner, and that means that summer’s not far behind. That’s why savvy homeowners are beating the crowds and the heat this year with an energy saver tune-up.

“But my A/C system worked just fine all last year. It shouldn’t need anything this year, should it?” Even if your air conditioning system still cools your home and doesn’t break down, it could be functioning at lower efficiency, using more power, and costing you more money than it should all summer long. Do you want to save on your utility bills and stay cool and comfortable this year? Check out all the benefits you can get from a tune-up.

Why Should You Get a Summer Tune-Up Now?

Think of how much better your car runs after a tune-up. Without proper maintenance, any machine will stop functioning as well as it once did, and your air conditioner is no different. Did you know that a well-tuned air conditioner can actually save you up to 30% on your cooling costs?

Not only that, but getting your unit tuned up also helps it remove more dust and debris from the air in your home, significantly increasing your indoor air quality. And, of course, if you get your air conditioning unit maintained annually (before summer, when you’ll be using it the most), you’ll see fewer breakdowns, and it will last much longer.

What’s Included?

So, what is an air conditioner tune-up? What kind of maintenance does your A/C need? A comprehensive summer tune-up will include:

  • Replacing your air filter with a new one
  • Draining and cleaning your condensate line
  • Checking the system’s wiring, as well as thermostat controls to ensure everything is operating efficiently
  • Checking all fluid and pressure levels and adjusting as needed
  • Thoroughly cleaning all coils
  • Lubricating all moving parts
  • Thoroughly inspecting the entire system for damage and/or wear and tear
  • Running a full system performance test to ensure everything is functioning properly

Plus, when you choose Berner for your summer tune-up, you’ll not only get the most comprehensive tune-up available, but you’ll also get free return service if your air conditioner fails this spring. Why gamble on your comfort this summer when you can get guaranteed service like that?

Don’t Sweat It This Summer

Every air conditioning system should get checked out every year. It’s like getting an oil change or tune-up on your car. You could get away with not doing it for several years in a row, but when it does finally fail, it’s more than likely going to fail catastrophically and cost you a great deal of money.

Plus, air conditioning repair and maintenance companies are always busiest during the summer. People wait until the very last minute to get tune-ups and/or they wait until something goes wrong and their A/C stops working entirely. And when does this usually happen? Of course, it usually happens when the air conditioning system is under the most stress (to be read: when it’s very hot outside, at the peak of summer).

You don’t want to wait until your air conditioner is struggling to fight against the heat and humidity in July or August to call for repairs and/or maintenance. And you definitely don’t want to wait until your A/C breaks down entirely, and you’re left sweating, hoping that you can get someone out within a reasonable period of time. That sounds miserable, doesn’t it?

Instead, call the experts at Berner A/C & Heat for the best deal on a comprehensive summer tune-up today. You’ll be glad you did when your utility bills stay low and you stay cool this summer!
