Are AC Tune Ups Worth It?
Lots of people in Kansas City ask us if it’s worth it to get a tune up of their HVAC system. Here at Apex Heating & Air Conditioning we think the answer is a definite “yes”!
We don’t say that only because we hope you’ll ask us to perform that tune up for you. We think it’s smart for a couple of reasons, which you may not have even considered.
You definitely don’t want to service your unit yourself. Even if you’re handy with a hammer and have a good flashlight, you don’t to tackle a job like this on your own. An HVAC unit has a lot of moving parts – some of which are high voltage – and unless you know for certain what you’re doing (like the trained technicians at Apex Heating & Air Conditioning, it’s not worth the risk of damaging your unit (or even worse) to save a couple of bucks. And on that note, an AC tune up from Apex Heating & Air Conditioning is not that expensive – it’s probably a lot less than you might think, a small price to pay for the peace of mind you’ll get knowing you HVAC unit is up for the tough job ahead of it this summer, keeping you and you family cool and comfortable inside when the temps outside are high.
If you have been bad about replacing your HVAC filter on a regular basis, you definitely want to schedule an AC tune up. Even if you have remembered to make it a part of your monthly routine, there are other issues that can come up with your AC –
especially if your unit has a few years under its belt. And belts are another good reason to schedule a tune up: a technician worth his salt will check the blower belt and other moving parts as part of a tune up.
So, yes, Apex Heating & Air Conditioning recommends every person in Kansas City contact us to schedule an AC tune up, before summer hits us hard!
