An air conditioner won’t run reliably forever. In an area like ours, where summers reach the triple digits, technicians get pretty busy in the summer as air conditioners are working their hardest and become more likely to break down. But often, the problems our techs are dealing with could have been detected earlier with less trouble—or even prevented entirely.
An air conditioning system tune-up in the early spring can save you a lot of trouble as temperatures start to spike. Get your AC tune-up before the season begins. Learn more about why this is so important in the guide below, and consider joining our maintenance program for the ultimate in savings.
What is an AC tune-up?
It goes by many names in the HVAC industry (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning)—a preseason tune-up, air conditioning maintenance, or preventative maintenance. And different companies carry their own custom checklist of what to do with any given maintenance appointment. In effect, however, there are three major overarching steps of an AC tune-up.
- Inspection – A thorough inspection helps technicians to find out whether any component of the system needs repair or replacement. Follow-up after the inspection may require a separate appointment.
- Cleaning – Technicians will clean the outside coil, any debris from the blower fan, and any other component that needs cleaning to work properly.
- Adjustment – The AC technician will make small adjustments here and there to help the system run more smoothly.
How Does an AC Tune-Up Benefit You?
An air conditioning system should have a tune-up each year so that it can run more smoothly. This benefits you and your wallet in so many ways!
- Prevents AC Breakdowns – An air conditioner is most likely to break down on one of the hottest days of the year, when you need it the most. You might prevent an air conditioning system failure with a routine tune-up early in the year.
- Saves Money – A tune-up helps an air conditioner to run more smoothly, which lowers the monthly cost of operation.
- Extends System Lifespans – Regular AC tune-ups may keep your air conditioner running for longer.
How Can You Save Even More with a Maintenance Program?
A heating and air conditioning maintenance program offers you a way to save even more. You sign an agreement with a local air conditioning and heating contractor, agreeing to pay a set amount per year or per month. In exchange, you get 1-2 tune-ups per year, and year-round protection and savings.
Take our Valued Customer Club, for example. We offer three different levels for our plan with low monthly payment options to make it easier. Each plan comes with a complete 21-point inspection twice a year and easy pre-season reminders for scheduling.

This includes discounts on service and diagnostics, no overtime fees, 1 or 2 year repair warranties, same-day response time, and the peace of mind of knowing we’re on your side.
