Are HVAC Tune-Ups Really Worth It?
You’ve heard us say time and time again that you should schedule HVAC tune-ups at the start of spring and fall, but not everyone actually does so. A lot of people wait and wonder if HVAC tune-ups are actually worth the money. Well, the short answer is yes. Here’s why:
Tune-Ups Give Your AC a Jump Start
Think about how awful you’d feel if, after months of never exercising, you tried to do a 100-meter dash — pretty awful. It’s the same for your HVAC unit. A tune-up allows it to get in better shape before gearing up for the season ahead.
Tune-Ups are Less Expensive
Sure, you’ll spend a bit of money on tune-ups twice a year, but those tune-ups will almost always cost less than a repair, much less a replacement. Tweaking a few bolts or replacing a small belt is easier and cheaper than replacing a large component if a lack of maintenance causes your system to break down.
Tune-Ups Help Maintain Your Warranty
You might not have known it, but many manufacturers will actually consider your system’s warranty null and void if it breaks down due to a lack of proper maintenance. In order to keep your warranty and avoid paying higher repair costs in the future, tune-ups are a must.
Tune-Ups Lower Your Energy Bills
Since a tune-up fine tunes (pun intended) your HVAC system, it helps it operate in the best possible shape. When it’s running well like that, it won’t have to use as much energy to work, keeping your overall utility bills lower.
