Air Conditioner Clean & Check

You probably don’t think much about your home’s air conditioner until there’s a problem. By that time, you are stranded in a sweltering house, waiting for an AC repair technician to arrive and get your system working again. Long-term homeowners realize that regular AC tune-up is well worth the investment.

If you have been putting off arranging your annual AC tune-up, now is the time to do it. A proper AC clean & check, similar to oil changes, is not optional or extra.

An extremely dirty air conditioner on a Chicago rooftop needs an AC tune up.

Benefits of annual AC tune-up

AC tune-up (also known as AC check & clean) is more critical than you might think. Here are a few reasons why you should strongly consider contacting a local professional and having your system inspected this spring.

Save money and energy

Have you noticed that your electricity bills have been rising like the heat outside this summer? There’s a direct link between delaying your AC tune-up and increased energy bills.

Without regular maintenance, your air conditioner will gradually lose efficiency and effectiveness.

Increased costs from energy use can result from even a minor dropoff in efficiency. Think about it for a second: During the warmest, most humid days of the year, you leave your air conditioner running practically nonstop. Anywhere from a 5-10% drop in efficiency each hour translates to higher energy costs and diminished cooling performance.

When all is said and done, your AC tune-up could end up paying for itself!

Increase comfort

So far, we have mostly discussed money. But your comfort is also just as important. After all, isn’t it the main reason why you run your AC in the first place? Without regular maintenance, your air conditioner is more likely to work inconsistently, chill your home slowly, or even experience such issues as short-cycling, which happens when your AC continuously turns itself off and on because it can’t sustain the present temperature in your home.

Many of us cannot put a figure on the sense of cool air blowing out of the vents on a hot and humid summer night.

Given the low cost of an AC tune-up, having a licensed and well-trained professional come out to ensure your system is operating at peak efficiency is critical.

Improve the quality of your indoor air

We have already addressed how dust accumulation inside your system can have a detrimental impact on your comfort and energy bills. Another factor is the quality of your indoor air. Dust, grime, and pollutants can clog your air filter, accumulate in your air ducts, and extend the spring allergy season into the summer.

Indoor Air Quality, sometimes known as “IAQ,” is imperative. According to many experts, indoor air quality is typically far worse than outdoor air quality. Time is a factor; considering how much more of our lives are spent indoors than outside, poor indoor air quality would have a greater impact.

An AC tune-up can help with dust and allergen reduction at home, which is great news for anyone who suffers from respiratory issues due to dust or allergies. Expert help is worth considering if you want to boost the overall IAQ of your residence. Cleaning the ducts that carry the air through your home is also a good idea.

Maintain your warranty

Here is something you probably didn’t know: your new air conditioner comes with a manufacturer’s warranty.

While the small print differs from system to system, most of these warranties cover crucial AC components, such as the compressor, for years after installation. This protects you from the chance of a faulty or malfunctioning component bricking the system.

As you might expect, there is a catch: most of these manufacturers’ warranties require you to have an annual professional AC tune-up in order to keep the coverage alive. If you skip a year, you may lose your normally free warranty coverage.

From the manufacturers’ perspective, they only want to cover systems that are properly cared for by the homeowner (via a professional HVAC technician). From your perspective, you should do everything in your power to keep your warranty coverageβ€”it could end up saving you thousands of dollars in the long run!

Extend your system lifespan

Yes, an AC tune-up is expensive. What is much more expensive? Purchasing a new air conditioner. As a homeowner, your goal should be to get as many years out of your AC unit as possible before having to replace it.

Most air conditioners have a lifespan of 12-20 years. Why such a broad range? Well, part of it has to do with upkeep. A system that has accumulated years of dust and dirt must work harder, resulting in increased wear and tear.

Furthermore, faulty parts put the entire air conditioner at risk of being harmed. An AC tune-up won’t make your system last forever (nothing will!), but it will improve its chances of lasting longer.

Returning to our earlier automobile analogy, how long do you think your car will last without a tune-up or an oil change? Probably not many.

Be that as it may, many homeowners are amazed when their air conditioner fails after a decade, even though they never planned preventative maintenance. AC Tune-ups are a necessity.

It is not only preventative maintenance that is vital. Every year that your air conditioner goes without a tune-up, it has to work harder and harder to keep your home cool. That means more runtime, wear, and tear, and energy consumed. All of this adds up to “mileage” on your air conditioner.

Linda G.

Eco Temp HVAC and it's owners Jordan & Kyle are tradesmen of the highest quality: honest, knowledgeable, and professional (and fairly priced). They installed a new furnace & A/C after our old ones became problematic. All of the workers were hard working and treated us respectfully during the installation. Can't give them enough plaudits, and I recommend their services without reservations.

These guys are great! Kyle and Jordan came by and gave me an estimate. I approved it on the spot and they came back to my house in Chicago in Logan Square and installed my new Mitsubishi mini split system in one day! They were clean and courteous to the max. They wore booties and hid all the lines they installed. It's so nice to be able to make it nice and cold when I go to bed. Very happy with everything! Thank you eco temp hvac!

I bought this heater for my mom, who is in her 80s. We were worried about her being cold in the winter, so we decided to get her a heating pad. She loves it! She said that it's warmer than any other heater she's used before and that it's very easy to use.
