After what was a cold and eventful winter, temperatures are finally beginning to warm up in the St. Louis area. That means that we here at Jerry Kelly are setting our sights on spring, which is the season for air conditioner tune-ups! But if you didn't encounter any problems with your cooling system last year, you might be wondering, "Do I need an air conditioner tune-up every year?" In order to answer that question, let's take a look at what's involved in a precision tune-up from Jerry Kelly and how it can improve your system's performance, efficiency and safety!
An air conditioner tune-up from Jerry Kelly includes a number of different tasks that should only be performed by an experienced and certified technician. A partial list of those tasks includes:
When you think about your car, would you go years without changing its oil, rotating its tires, checking its alignment and all the other tasks that are required to keep it running safely and smoothly? Sure, the car might still run if you skip those tasks, but the chances of it breaking down will skyrocket.
You should think about air conditioner tune-ups in the same way. Yes, your air conditioner might continue to run if you skip out on your tune-ups. However, doing so will significantly increase the likelihood of future breakdowns, expensive repairs, high energy bills, safety problems and a shorter operating life for your system.
And that's not to mention the fact that your air conditioner has been dormant all winter long. During that time, it could have developed refrigerant leaks, electrical problems, dirt buildup and a number of other issues that are likely to affect your system in the next month or two.
If you have any questions about whether or not you need an air conditioner tune-up every year, or if you'd like a cooling system serviced or installed in your home, contact Jerry Kelly, your St. Charles heating and cooling contractor. We service the St. Louis area, including towns like O’Fallon, St. Charles and St. Paul.
