Air Conditioning Tune-Ups

Air Conditioning Tune-Ups in Jacksonville FL

tune upAs with anything mechanical, over time parts can break or run less efficiently. Air conditioning tune-ups help equipment run at or near their original factory specifications, depending on age and overall condition or your air conditioning unit. When your air conditioner runs efficiently it takes less energy to cool your home, which saves you money. And, when equipment doesn’t have to work harder, it lasts longer, in turn saving you money on replacing your ac unit.

Just like most people take care of their car with an oil change, alignment and regular tune-up, it is important to treat your air conditioner with the same level of care. Did you know that the average Jacksonville air conditioner will run almost 3,300 hours per year, yet many consumers will go for years at a time without tuning up their air conditioners. Many consumers believe that regular tune-ups are too expensive and they would rather use their money on more important things.  Homeowners who do not have routine air conditioning and maintenance performed on their systems are actually losing thousands of dollars, rather than saving money.
