Forgot Your Tune-Up? It Isn’t Too Late!


We know it doesn’t feel like it at all but the cooling season will be over sooner than you might think. Those temperatures in the 90s are going to give way in the next couple of months and give your air conditioner a well-deserved break. However, this isn’t the case right now and we want to make sure that your AC unit is still running as effectively and efficiently as possible. One of the best ways to do this is to schedule a regular yearly tune-up.

If you just read this and went, “Oh I forgot about that completely, maybe next year,” we want to let you know it isn’t too late. While air conditioning maintenance in the Isle of Palms, SC is something we encourage in spring before the cooling season starts, you can still get this service taken care of at the end of the season. If anything, it is probably going to be even more important to have it done now!

Why AC Maintenance At The End of The Season Is Still Important

There are always people who are surprised that they can still get maintenance done on their air conditioning system at the end of the season. You can and, especially if you forgot to schedule a tune-up at the beginning of the season, getting this done is a really good idea. Here’s some reasons why:

  1. Less stress next summer: When you are preparing for the cooling season next year, would you rather schedule maintenance like usual or would you prefer to need a repair to kick off summer? If you skip maintenance completely, you are far more likely to discover your AC unit has a repair need next summer. Skip the hassle to scheduling your tune-up now.
  2. Less chance of bigger problems with a heat pump: Do you have a heat pump as your home comfort system? If so, scheduling late-season maintenance benefits you in more than one way. Because your heat pump is going to simply switch from cooling to heating mode, a lot of the tasks accomplished as a part of the AC maintenance will benefit your system’s ability to keep your home warm later on this winter.
  3. Better efficiency: Last but not least, we want to make sure you know just how helpful maintenance is to your air conditioner’s energy efficiency. Without any maintenance, your system will lose up to 5% of its efficiency which means higher bills and more stress on your system overall. Scheduling maintenance towards the end of the season can still help to improve your unit’s efficiency, ensuring you won’t get any nasty surprises on your bill as summer winds down.

Haven’t scheduled your yearly air conditioning maintenance service yet? Not to worry, we can still help you out. When you schedule a tune-up with our team you can rest easy knowing your system and your home comfort will be well taken care of.
