When Should You Tune-Up Your AC?
We know that you need to count on your air conditioner all summer long to stay cool. Did you know that air conditioner maintenance can help keep your AC running efficiently the entire year? A simple tune-up can help to avoid problems and troubleshoot issues before your air conditioner stops working altogether.
Here are a few signs that it’s time to give Wimpy’s Plumbing & Air a call and have your AC tuned up.
If it’s been 1+ year since the last tune-up
Air conditioning maintenance should be done once a year. If you can’t remember the last time a technician looked at your AC, or you know it was quite some time ago, it’s time for a tune-up. We can take a look at the AC unit, let you know if anything is not working right, and perform regular cleaning, so your unit will run strong all summer long.
If your AC never turns off
Ideally, your air conditioner should run for a while, then turn off when the property reaches the desired temperature. If your unit just continuously runs all the time, then it isn’t operating as efficiently as it should. Give us a call, and we’ll come figure out what has gone wrong. It’s quite possible that some simple, routine air conditioning maintenance will get things going again soon.
If your AC blows lukewarm air
Is the air your unit blows warm, or not as cold as you would like? This means it needs some love and care from a technician. Our staff will come out, perform the required maintenance and cleaning, and see if that takes care of the problem. Many times, all you need is a clean filter or to have the system cleaned out to get the air colder again.
If your AC is over 10 years old
Older air conditioners should receive more regular maintenance to help them stay running well. Cleaning them up and making sure everything is up to the manufacturer’s standards can help the system to cool your space better help it last longer. This is because AC tune-ups minimize wear and tear and catch problems before they become catastrophic.
