Pierce Refrigeration points out different issues you may be having with your HVAC equipment that require professional attention.

It is still cool enough in Massachusetts that you need to use your furnace, so why think about getting your air conditioner tuned now? If you have lived in New England long you know the weather can change quickly. It’s better to be prepared for the heat and humidity before it hits and so here are 5 reasons why you should have your air conditioner tuned annually:

1. Be Summer Ready

Your air conditioner has been dormant for many months now which leaves plenty of time for debris, dust and critters to become an issue. One of our licensed HVAC techs will clean up your system, check for potential issues and make sure your AC is ready for the summer months.

2. Decrease Energy Bills, Increase Energy Efficiency

We clean the coils and other mechanical pieces of your air conditioner your AC doesn’t have to work as hard.

The debris and dust we just discussed can cause your AC system to work harder but less efficiently. When we clean the coils and other mechanical pieces of your air conditioner your AC doesn’t have to work as hard. This increase of efficiency leads to a decrease on your energy bill. We consider that a win-win.

3. Avoid a Mid-Season Breakdown

Having your AC stop working in the middle of the summer is the last thing you want. Getting a tune-up in the spring can help prevent this from happening. Our techs can check for, and fix potential issues before they become major problems. This is a savings of aggravation and money!

4. Breathe Easy.

You want to make sure the air you are breathing is as clean as possible. Getting your system tuned prevents the aforementioned dust and debris from circulating in your home. If you, or someone in your home, consistently feels ill or has allergy symptoms, your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ) is something to have checked out. Regular maintenance can help improve your overall IAQ.

5. Increase Lifespan of Your AC System

According to energy.gov, you can add years to your air conditioner’s lifespan by having it regularly maintained. Neglecting annual tune-ups causes decline in performance and an increase in energy usage.

We recommend that you schedule your AC tune-up early so you are prepared when the heat arrives.
