Nothing will spoil the joy of your summer more than your air conditioning (AC) unit breaking down on a hot afternoon.

Protect your New Berlin home’s AC equipment and ensure you stay cool by scheduling a preseason tune-up.

When Is the Best Time to Schedule an AC Tune-Up?

You should schedule an AC tune-up during the spring or early summer.

Think of it this way: you don’t use your air conditioner in the fall or winter, so you will want to have a professional inspect and maintain it before you use it every day for another two seasons! The last thing you want is to turn on your AC for the first time when it’s hot outside and after you haven’t used it in months, only to realize it won’t turn on at all.

Get your equipment checked, cleaned, and maintained beforehand to ensure you remain comfortable throughout the spring and summer!

Why Is It Important to Schedule an AC Tune-Up?

Maintenance helps you get the most out of any equipment—including your air conditioner. It’s how you protect your investment and ensure it runs efficiently, not just for this year but many years afterward.

If you skip a maintenance visit and there’s an underlying issue, you won’t know until it becomes a more expensive repair or leads to an inconvenient breakdown. It’s always better to be proactive and get your system checked and prepared before you begin using it.

Maintenance can also pay for itself since it helps your system run efficiently. Greater efficiency means less energy is used, which means savings on your energy bills!

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA),  air conditioning accounts for about 12 percent of the average home’s energy bill. An air conditioning tune-up could help you lower your energy use and costs, so why wouldn’t you want to schedule your visit? An air conditioning maintenance visit could help you save money!
