How Important Are AC Tune-Ups?

Year-round, your HVAC system works hard to keep your family cool and comfortable. Even if you own a new home or you’ve recently put in a new HVAC system, you can put a lot of wear and tear on it in just one season. If you’ve never experienced problems with your unit, you may be tempted to skip this year’s AC maintenance. Don’t do it.

Keeping up with regular maintenance is the single most important thing you can do to maintain AC efficiency and longevity. AC units are important investments and regular tune-ups help to ensure your home’s cooling system is cleaned and well-maintained.

How Often Should I Have My Air Conditioner Tuned Up?

You should schedule an AC tune-up once per year (twice per year if you have a heat pump!). Most have their AC tuned-up by a professional HVAC technician before the start of the cooling season in Fort Collins—ideally, between March and June.

To maintain optimal HVAC performance, you can also complete a few maintenance tasks on your own—like changing your air filter every 1–3 months.

Benefits of AC Tune-Up

Fewer repair calls

You don’t like coming home to a broken AC on a hot summer day, do you? We didn’t think so. Having your AC tuned-up at the start of the season will help a technician catch any issues before they become costly repairs (or leave you with a broken AC).

Lower utility bills

Want lower energy bills overall? Tune-up your AC before the summer. An HVAC technician can catch any bugs or wear and tear that may harm or cause strain on your system. When your system is strained, it’s working harder to cool your home—leaving you with extra energy costs.

Longer lifespan

With regular maintenance and care, an air conditioner should last between 10–15 years. Regular AC tune-ups are a proactive step toward keeping your system running closer to 15 (and not failing on you at the 8-year mark).
