If you’re like many Tallahassee, FL homeowners, narrowing down your spring to-do list seems almost like an impossibility. With everything you have going on, an AC tuneup can easily slip your mind.
Neglecting this small task, however, can create problems when the temperatures spike. Here are two ways a tuneup helps to keep your AC system healthy, efficient, and ready for use when you need it.
Helps It Work Smarter, Not Harder
Tallahassee summers can be hot and muggy, which means your AC unit gets a workout. Dirty coils and evaporators reduce the cooling ability of your system. A malfunctioning thermostat can cause your unit to work overtime. An AC tune-up, along with regular maintenance, ensures that the components in your system are clean and working properly. When your air conditioner runs well, it uses less energy to cool your home and saves you money.
Ensures It Has Air to Breathe
Inadequate airflow in your HVAC system is similar to breathing through a straw while you’re jogging. Eventually, the lack of air will shut down your body. Clogged filters, dirty motors, and blocked vents or registers are a few reasons why your AC unit cannot get enough air to breathe. When this happens, your air conditioner will shut down in protest. With an annual AC tune-up, you can find and fix any issues before they shut down your system. An AC unit that’s energy efficient increases your comfort and reduces the likelihood of breakdowns.
To make sure that your AC system is energy efficient and ready to combat the summer heat in Tallahassee, FL, put an AC tune-up at the top of your to-do list.
