Benefits of an End-of-Summer Central Air Tune-up
Written on: August 21, 2023
Why annual A/C maintenance is a good call.
We think everyone can agree that there have been some intensely hot days this summer. When we experienced multiple 90+ degree afternoons in a row in Queens, Nassau and Suffolk counties, the households we serve were happy to have well-functioning central air conditioning systems.
If your central A/C has worked hard this summer, it’s a good idea to arrange an end-of-season tune-up. Here are five significant benefits of late-summer A/C maintenance.
1. Fewer breakdowns.
With each hot, humid day your central A/C is running, its components experience more wear and tear. Additionally, lingering issues like low refrigerant or clogged condensate drains may force your equipment to work harder. When you arrange a tune-up, an OSI Comfort Specialists technician can look for these issues and fix them preemptively, saving you an expensive repair job in the future.
2. Superior cooling efficiency.
Air conditioning uses a lot of energy. In fact, Americans spend 29 billion dollars each year to stay cool, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. But when you arrange annual service for your equipment, you’ll ensure its peak efficiency. The relatively low cost of a tune-up pays off big with lower energy spending.
3. Better indoor air quality.
The ductwork that your central A/C uses can circulate more than cool air. It can transport dust, debris, mold, pollen and other pollutants that negatively impact your indoor air quality. This, in turn, exacerbates allergies, asthma symptoms, seasonal illnesses and your home’s general comfort. With an end-of-summer service visit, we can clean your A/C equipment and change your filters.
4. A longer service lifespan.
A central A/C system can last 15 to 20 years, on average. But its life expectancy will be shorter if you don’t properly maintain your equipment. Bringing in a professional HVAC technician once a year helps your system run better for longer.
5. More convenient scheduling.
