Austin Air Conditioning Inspections, Tune-Ups, Maintenance, and Service
Like most equipment and appliances, the more efficiently that cooling equipment runs, the less it has to work to get the job done.
Equipment that doesn’t run as long or work as hard will last longer and save you money over time. Depending on the condition and age of your air conditioning system, regular tune-ups will allow the equipment to function at or close to the factory specifications.
Watch the following video for an explanation of our Bi-Annual Maintenance Plan, BAM! This air conditioning tune-up plan includes a fall furnace tune-up and a spring AC system tune-up. Fill out our web form on this page, contact our customer service line, or check out our BAM page for more details on the BAM membership.
During a regular tune-up, small, developing problems can be detected and repaired. These fixes are often quick and painless. However, if homeowners neglect system maintenance, the small problems can become major ones, requiring extensive and costly repairs. The investment in air conditioning service and maintenance will save you money in the long run.
For example, an undetected refrigerant leak will eventually drain the refrigerant and cause the compressor to burn. A failing compressor will first run inefficiently, causing much higher electric bills. Before long, however, it will stop working altogether, requiring a replacement costing at least $1000. When a refrigerant leak is caught early, it can be easily repaired at an affordable cost.
