With 2021 drawing to a close, it’s time to think about the best time to schedule tune-ups to your air conditioning system in 2022. Here’s what you need to know.
What Are AC Tune-Ups?
An Air conditioning tune-up is a form of preventative maintenance. This means nipping in the bud certain issues before they cause a breakdown which can be costly to repair.
Tune-ups are performed by a trained AC professional who carries out certain routine (but important) tasks such as lubricating mechanical components, checking the electric circuits, measuring refrigerant levels and airflow, checking for duct leakage, among others.
Being diligent with your tune-up schedule is a smart way to save money and ensure that your home stays cool and comfortable all year long.
When Should I Schedule AC Tune-Ups in 2022?
When scheduling your AC tune-ups, check your unit’s user manual and see if your manufacturer has included specific instructions regarding the frequency of tune-ups.
In most cases, it’s advisable to schedule two tune-ups a year, one before summer and one before winter.
Some signs that your AC unit needs a tune-up as soon as possible include:
- Your unit blows warm air instead of cool air
- Weak airflow
- Unusual sounds (such as hissing, screeching, humming, or rattling) coming from your unit
- Your utility bills skyrocket
- Your unit produces strange smells (musty, moldy, or foul smells)
AC tune-ups are particularly important in cities like San Antonio, Texas, where air conditioning is not a luxury but a necessity.
