AC Tune Up Services

Ac Tune Up ServiceJust like your vehicle, your air conditioner needs regular tune ups. You would never dream of letting your car go thousands of miles without an oil change, nor would you leave your car out in the elements to be exposed to a range of weather without running it every so often. Unfortunately, many home and business owners expose their air conditioners to this type of treatment. Your air conditioner often goes months without use during the cooler months; they are also exposed to the heat and rain that is so prevalent in our climate. In the south, we also typically run our air conditioners far more often than our northern neighbors.

What Is An AC Tune Up?

Our AC Tune Up consists of our 47 point inspection. We will thoroughly check and test every component of your air conditioning system. During this inspection, we will check and inspect the following:

When Should I Have My AC Tuned Up?

Most manufacturers recommend a tune up annually. For many of our customers, annual tune ups will be sufficient, however, if you use your air conditioner all year long, you may need tune ups every six months. It is best to have your air conditioner tuned up during the cooler months so that any problems can be fixed before you are heavily relying on the air conditioner during the summer months.
