Home Cooling System Annual Maintenance: Why It Is Important

People sometimes ask us, “Is an air conditioning tune-up really necessary every year? Our answer is always the same: YES!

An air conditioning system is a major home comfort investment, and like any investment, it needs to be protected. The best way to do that? Have your A/C professionally maintained every year.

5 reasons to give your A/C a little TLC before you start it up for the year:

  1. More reliable equipment
 – About four out of the five air conditioner repairs we see are preventable; proper care will help you avoid inconvenient equipment breakdowns, and the potentially costly A/C repairs that come with them. The worst time to find out that your cooling system has a problem is when the heat has already arrived here in the Hudson Valley – which is why spring is the best time to schedule an air conditioning tune-up.
  2. Longer system life – Replacing your neglected A/C earlier than you need to can be a drag – and a costly one, at that (to the tune of up to $7,400, according to Regular maintenance and tune-ups will help towards getting more years out of your system.
  3. More comfort – The best antidote for hot, sticky summer weather here in Sullivan County is a right-sized, properly-working air conditioner – installed and maintained by air conditioning experts to deliver cool, quiet performance.
  4. Lower energy bills – Regular tune-ups of your air conditioning system will keep it running more efficiently, which lowers your energy bills. Routine A/C maintenance also allow technicians to spot problems in your air conditioning system before they become bigger – and more expensive – to fix.
  5. Better air quality – A well-maintained air conditioner helps control humidity in your home, keeping air healthy and helping to prevent mold problems. Running it on high pollen days can help you breathe more easily, too.

For these reasons and more, it pays to schedule expert service from the trusted HVAC pros at Black Bear. We’ll get your A/C done quickly, and get it right the first time so you’ll have no repeat visits this summer.
