Air conditioners need maintenance as much as any other mechanical system, but most homeowners don’t think about their air conditioner the same way they do their car. In fact, for most, the air conditioner is out-of-sight, out-of-mind: unless there’s a problem, there won’t be much action taken to boost AC performance. These homeowners are actually missing out. Air conditioning maintenance is a good value for you and your home, and can prevent major issues down the road.

In fact, our team recommends seasonal AC maintenance for three very good reasons. They all make sense when you stop to think about them, because they all will help you get more out of your air conditioner while spending less.

When air conditioning units are pushed outside the bounds of their regular maintenance cycle, there’s a potential for small problems to start adding up. These problems might not stop the air conditioner from functioning altogether, but they might drastically decrease its efficiency. You spend more to stay cool than ever before.

In many cases, it also costs more to repair units that totally break down than it does to maintain them. If you have your AC maintained regularly, you’re giving our technician a chance to notice problems before they blow up into a major crisis that causes a breakdown. This, in turn, has the potential to save you a lot of money.


Sometimes, there are changes that can be made to an AC setup to make it more efficient. Other times, there are small operational hitches that get turned up during a maintenance cycle and smoothed out. As part of an AC tune-up, our technicians optimize the system’s comfort settings, ensuring that your home is getting the best-possible cooling for the lowest-possible energy costs.

AC maintenance is a lot like a tune-up or oil change for your car. It makes sure the unit has everything it needs to run smoothly until the next scheduled maintenance cycle. Like an oil change, it can also be a chance for you to ask questions and find out if there are problems without a big repair diagnosis bill. You’d be surprised just how many homeowners stumble onto a way to make their home much more energy efficient, just by chatting with one of our technicians.


No one likes it when their home heating and air conditioning units have performance issues. Having a relationship with a team who knows you and your system makes it easier to find the problems when they come up, though.
