Owning a home or business in Tryon NC means that you need to maintain a cool environment inside to get relief from the summertime heat and humidity. You might be wondering what all the fuss is regarding tune-ups for air conditioners. Just like your mechanic recommends an annual tune-up for the family vehicle, the air conditioning system also needs an annual tune up so that it is ready for whatever mother nature dishes out during the upcoming summer months. Below is information that will explain why regular preventive tune ups are so important to the functioning of a residential or commercial cooling system.

Better AC System Performance

Over months of use, the air conditioning system’s motor loses lubrication and the coils become filled with dirt, dust and other debris. A system tune up service includes cleaning so that its overall efficiency and effectiveness improve. As a result, your home or business will enjoy a more consistent and constant level of cooling. This in turn reduces wear and tear on the motor, which could extend its lifespan by several years.

Healthier Indoor Environment

One of the tune up service activities that we perform includes installation of a new air filter. The air filter plays a major role in controlling the amount of allergens in the air inside your home or business. By trapping the mold spores, pollen, pet dander and dust, there are fewer circulating allergens within the air. This means that the indoor environment will be a healthier one for anyone who suffers from allergies, asthma and other respiratory concerns.

Lower Energy Costs

A new air filter can lower the system’s electricity usage by five to fifteen percent each month. After we clean and lubricate the system as part of the maintenance service call, the motor and fan will also operate more efficiently. After the service, you can expect your overall costs for cooling to decrease by 30 percent or more. This service could pay for itself in just a month or two of use of the cooling system.
