There is no better feeling than after a day of work in warm temperatures, to retreat to your cool air conditioned home. However, many people know what it feels like to open up the door to their home and immediately feel something is not quite right. After a few adjustments to the AC unit with no promising results, the realization sets in: it’s just not working. That is why a yearly springtime maintenance on your AC unit is so important. Here are 4 top reasons to get your unit a spring tune-up.

Improve Your Home’s Air Quality

Do you suffer from allergies? If you are one of those people who knows exactly when spring is right around the corner due to watery eyes, sniffling, and sneezing, then you cannot afford to have the air in your home compromised. Having your unit cleaned yearly will keep bacteria, pollen, and other debris out your air. If you’d like more information on indoor air quality, get in touch with an expert at JR Perkins Heating & Cooling.

Avoid Getting Stuck With No AC During Summer Months

A hot summer day is the wrong time to be stuck with no air conditioning. The best time to get your unit serviced is during springtime. Yearly maintenance during the spring will ensure your unit is ready for those long hot summer days and nights. Since HVAC technicians receive a lot of calls about air conditioning repairs during summertime, you might have to wait days before someone can get out to your home.

Expand the Life-Span of Your Unit

Today, most AC units are made to last up to 20 years. However, that is only if they are routinely serviced. You unit can become clogged with debris, dirt, and other bacteria. Once an air conditioner condensation pipe becomes clogged, it causes an overflowing drain pan, or water puddles under the unit. Our trained technicians at JR Perkins Heating & Cooling are able to identify this problem early and correct it.

Save Money on Your Energy Bill

As a homeowner, saving money when you can for unexpected situations is necessary. Air conditioning systems which are not properly serviced eventually will cause your energy bill to rise. When your system is not routinely checked and cleaned, it works overtime to cool your home. However, bringing in a technician to check your system to address problem areas will keep it operating at its best, and keep your energy bill in check.
