AC Tune Up In Burlington, Union, Hebron, Florence, KY, and Surrounding Areas
You know that you’re supposed to have your car tuned up by a mechanic on occasion to keep it from breaking down. But, did you know that your air conditioner needs a similar type of service? Air conditioners have several components, moving parts, belts, and connections that can fail unless they’re properly maintained. An AC Tune Up In Burlington, Union, Hebron, Florence, KY, and Surrounding Areas from Proston Brothers Heating and Cooling is the best way to ensure your AC continues to provide the comfort your family deserves.
Why Is an AC Tune-Up Important?
Air conditioners are complex machines and every component has to work perfectly in sync. If one part fails, it can have a catastrophic effect on other parts and eventually the unit will break down. An AC tune-up is an insurance policy against those unexpected breakdowns and repairs. It’s also the best way to maximize your air conditioner’s efficiency and life expectancy.
How Often Do I Need an AC Tune-Up?
Air conditioners should be inspected and tuned-up by a qualified HVAC professional at least once a year. Ideally, this would happen in early spring, before the air conditioner is put into use for the season. However, it’s not unheard of to have a bi-annual AC tune-up, especially if the air conditioner is older, or has experienced multiple recent repairs.
