Should I Get a Late Season AC Tune-Up?

Summer is winding down, with fall and winter just around the corner. You may be thinking more about your heater than you are about your air conditioner right now. However, now is the best time to schedule an AC tuneup before you shut the system off for the coming months.

If it’s been a while since you scheduled air conditioning service in Chambersburg, PA, give our team a call now to make your appointment. You can also keep reading to learn more about the benefits of a late-season AC tune-up compared to putting the service off until springtime.

Risks of Putting Off Maintenance

As summer winds down, you’re probably beginning to think about fall. That means cooler temperatures and switching your thermostat over to heating mode. If your air conditioner has been showing any signs of problems, you may be tempted to put off a service appointment until next year before spring. 

This can be a problem because if something is beginning to go wrong in your air conditioner, and then it sits unused over the fall and winter, the problem could worsen quickly. By the time you schedule a service appointment in the spring, you may be facing a much larger and more extensive repair job.

Benefits of a Tune-Up

Scheduling an AC tune-up now offers you the peace of mind of knowing that you are turning your air conditioner off while it is in great working order. That way, when you turn it back on for cooling in the spring, you know that it will work, and work well at that.

Plus, tune-ups offer other benefits. Scheduling an AC tune-up consistently each year is the best way to ensure your air conditioner’s longevity. The average life of an air conditioner is around 10-15 years. The best way to have your AC reach that 15-year mark is simply by prioritizing maintenance, both homeowner maintenance and professional maintenance.

You have a role in maintaining your air conditioner each month, too. However, there is only so much that you can do. When our team has an opportunity to inspect your air conditioner annually, we can help it to last longer.

And the tweaks that we make also benefit you by way of energy savings. Without professional maintenance, your air conditioner would lose some of its efficiency each year. You may not notice an increase in your energy bills right away because the changes can be small. However, as your air conditioner gets older, this loss in efficiency can gain traction quickly. 

You may find yourself setting your thermostat lower in an attempt to keep your home cool because it is not operating as effectively as it used to. And even with the same settings, your air conditioner still may have to work harder to produce the same results. This can mean more expensive energy costs every single month. The costs can add up quickly.
