Spring time is now officially here, and it’s now the right time for an AC tune up. Why worry about getting an AC tune up? Well, an AC tune up is just as important as getting your teeth cleaned every six months at the dentist, or getting your car tuned up or getting an oil change every 3,000 miles. An average Kansas City home air conditioner runs for 1,200 hours every summer, so just as you would change that oil in your car you would want to tune up that AC or furnace before your cooling or heating season.
The difference between a system that gets tuned up regularly and a HVAC system that doesn’t is huge. When I say huge I mean in a huge money saving kind of way. We are talking about the difference between having to replace your whole HVAC system or just having a minor repair. For example, a tuned up air conditioner throughout the years normally just sees the need for minor repairs such as a capacitor needing replaced (which is a small repair.) A system that doesn’t get tuned up would see larger costly repairs such as a fan motor or compressor going bad which leads to having to buy a whole new AC or furnace. The average life of a HVAC system is 12 to 15 years of life, and the average life of a well tuned up system is 18 to 20 years. The difference is between hundreds of dollars vs. thousands of dollars. Also, a well tuned up system cuts the cost of your utility bills. Did you know that the last pound of Freon in your system is very important? If your just 1 pound low on Freon then that will cause 50% more runtime of your air conditioner, and that results to higher bills.
