An AC Tune-Up Can Save You as Much as 15% Monthly on Your Energy Bill
Our technicians are experts at fine tuning HVAC equipment to optimize performance and increase longevity. Here at Chavez Heating & Air we value our customers, and we know that a true system maintenance involves more that cleaning your evaporator coil and washing down your unit. While most contractors perform an AC Tune-up in under 30 minutes, our technicians typically take an hour or more. With more than 200 local residents on our maintenance program, we always have room for more.
So, what exactly will our technician do when performing an AC Tune-up? Well, it likely is a lot more than you think. And although it includes removing dust, dirt and grime from your system that is not the half of it. Check out the list below and learn what more we will do to keep your home comfortable and safe all summer long and all the while saving you money.
An AC unit that is not properly maintained will have difficulty with the primary role of an AC unit and that is to removing heat from your home. As air passes through the evaporator coil the heat transfer may not take place adequately. The result is air that is not as cold as it should be. This may hinder the air conditioning system from reaching the desired temperature in a timely manner.
A properly tuned AC unit can also help you breathe better! An air conditioner is also an air filtration system. However, an AC unit that is not properly serviced can limit air flow. This can restrict or limit the system’s ability to adequately remove dust, pet dander, allergens and other contaminants. This can have an adverse effect on your health and trigger symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, coughing, headaches, dizziness and respiratory illnesses. The elderly and children are prone to long term effects when prolonged exposure to poor indoor air quality.
