Chicago Air Conditioner Maintenance
Your air conditioner is one of the most important appliances in your home. After all, when heat and humidity levels soar here in Chicago, you count on your AC to keep your house cool and comfortable. That way, when you return home after a day at Navy Pier or the Lincoln Park Zoo, you know you’ll be greeted by an oasis of conditioned air to cool you off.
Of course, the reliability of your AC is highly dependent on how often you maintain it. The same way you change the oil in your car to help improve gas mileage and prevent breakdowns, you should plan to maintain your air conditioner for a performance boost and longer lifespan. ABC Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electric offers the maintenance services you’re looking for! Count on our 65 years of experience to tune-up your air conditioner in preparation for another Chicago summer.
Air Conditioner Maintenance Services
Some HVAC companies offer a basic cleaning and flashlight inspection. However, the team at ABC goes above and beyond this to ensure maximum comfort and performance for the upcoming season. We guarantee the results of our Precision Air Conditioner Tune Up, which includes:
- Thorough System Cleaning
- Air Delivery System Analysis
- System Malfunction Check
- Safety & Efficiency Inspection
- Thermostat Battery Replacement
- And More!
The Importance of Air Conditioner Maintenance
What if someone told you that their car had 60,000 miles on it and they’d never taken it in for an oil change. You’d probably be thinking “you’re just waiting for a costly and unexpected breakdown any time.”
Regular maintenance for your air conditioner is equally as important as regular oil changes for your vehicle. Your air conditioner works had to keep you and your family cool and comfortable on those hot and humid summer days.
Unlike your car, you can’t drive your air conditioner to the nearest garage for maintenance. So, ABC brings the garage to your home via our distinctive green service vehicles. It’s a mobile warehouse stocked with all the parts, equipment and tools needed to perform the most comprehensive system tune-up and safety inspection.
The Best Time of Year for Air Conditioner Maintenance
Wondering when to schedule your next AC tune-up? Spring is the best time of year for maintenance because your air conditioner just spent the last several months in hibernation. A tune-up in the spring sets up the cooling equipment for a successful summer by cleaning away the cobwebs of winter, lubricating moving parts, and repairing anything that might cause a breakdown later in the season.
Some Chicago homeowners put off scheduling an AC tune-up until later in the summer. Better late than never! Still, spring remains the best time of year for air conditioner maintenance. Don’t wait until your cooling equipment breaks down on a muggy summer afternoon in Chicago – take the preventative route and tune up your air conditioner this spring!
Benefits of Professional AC Maintenance
Scheduling a visit from ABC to tune up your air conditioner every spring is an affordable way to enjoy many money-saving benefits, including:
- Reduced energy bills: High electricity costs in the summer are due in large part to inefficient air conditioning. With an equipment cleaning and tune-up, you can expect your AC to reach its full potential, keeping you comfortable while lowering your energy bills at the same time.
- Fewer repairs: A tuned-up air conditioner is far less likely to break down than a neglected one. Help your cooling equipment make it all summer without a hitch by scheduling maintenance in the spring.
- Longer equipment lifespan: Making annual preventative maintenance a priority could help your AC last years longer, allowing you to put off an expensive replacement for a few more summers.
- Warranty coverage: Many manufacturers only uphold parts warranties for equipment that receives preventative tune-ups every year. Skipping maintenance could void your warranty, leaving you to foot the bill if a part fails prematurely. Be sure to keep records of our maintenance visits so you receive the warranty coverage you deserve.
