The Link Between AC Repair and Tune-Ups

Monday, August 28th, 2023 at 11:00 am

If you’re tempted to skip out on air conditioning maintenance this year, we encourage you to go ahead and schedule that appointment. There is a direct correlation between keeping up with regular maintenance and avoiding repairs for your air conditioner.

If you want to avoid unexpected air conditioning repair in Saint Augustine, tune-ups are the way to do that. You can keep reading to learn more about the benefits of air conditioning maintenance and how you can prevent major repairs and breakdowns from ever happening.

Major AC Repairs

If you have ever dealt with a major air conditioning repair, you know exactly what we mean when we say that is a headache. Usually, a major repair first involves your air conditioner breaking down and not working at all. And it never happens at a convenient time, not that an air conditioner breakdown is ever convenient. But it usually happens on one of the hottest days or at a time when you have a lot of other things going on in your life.

But an air conditioner breakdown demands your attention. It’s a problem that you cannot ignore because doing so means that your home is not comfortable. But AC breakdowns do not happen overnight. They began as very small problems, that if addressed sooner could have helped you avoid the breakdown and completely.

Perks of an AC Tune-Up

That’s where an AC tune-up comes in. You schedule an air conditioning maintenance appointment to tune up the unit even when nothing is wrong. This is an annual service appointment that you should complete ideally before the summer season starts to get your AC ready to run all season long. In a majority of cases, the people who call us for AC breakdowns do not invest in annual air conditioning tune-ups.

Instead, they forego this service and wait for something to go wrong before addressing it. On the flip side of that, the customers who come to us regularly for AC tune-ups rarely face major AC problems. We may need to fix something here or there, but the problems pale in comparison to a total system breakdown. Many homeowners skip annual AC maintenance in an attempt to save money.

However, you’re really just choosing where you spend your money and even rolling the dice on potentially spending even more on repairs than you would on maintenance. Maintenance is often cheaper because we are fixing very small problems during these appointments. A breakdown could cost you thousands of dollars. And even if you added up all of the money you supposedly saved on not scheduling tune-ups, it would never reach the price tag of that one major repair.
