12 Things You Should Expect in an AC Tune-Up

Spring has sprung and with it warmer temperatures. As it gets closer to summer, many will soon be relying on their air conditioners to keep them cool. So why should you schedule an appointment to have your unit serviced? It seems to be working fine. The answer is one simple word: maintenance. Proper maintenance is essential for any large piece of equipment with many moving parts. Think of your car. Experts always tout proper maintenance to keep your car running longer and more efficiently. Often repairs are much more expensive if maintenance is ignored. Gas mileage can slip, and resale value falls. Maintenance on your car or your AC system can stop problems before they arise saving you time, hassle and money.
