With the hot weather season approaching, air conditioners around the country will begin to switch on. Spring is the time when you should schedule your annual air conditioning maintenance in Denver and beyond. Scheduling an annual visit from a trained technician is essential for extending the life of your unit and keeping down bills for power and repairs.

Not sure if you really need a tune-up? Here are six reasons why you should schedule your Denver air conditioning maintenance today!

1. Lower Your Utility Bills

When your air conditioner is not operating efficiently, it works harder to cool your home. As a result, you consume more electricity and receive higher utility bills.  Have your AC unit tuned up by a Bell HVAC technician who can clean the unit, replace the filter, and adjust all settings. Doing this will ensure your air conditioner is operating efficiently!

That tune-up soon pays for itself as your monthly bills become lower. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, a regularly maintained AC system will save a homeowner around 15% annually!

2. Enhance the Reliability of Your Cooling

Colorado is known for its hot summer days. But if you’ve ever noticed that some rooms seem cool while others still feel warm, it’s a sign that your air conditioner needs a tune-up. Regular servicing of your air conditioner ensures its reliable response to every temperature change. You’ll notice the hot and cold pockets even out, and the unit cools the home quickly to your preferred temperature.

3. Extend the Lifespan and Performance of Your AC

With any home system, preventative maintenance is the key to protecting and preserving its lifespan and performance. With a central air conditioner, preventative maintenance in the form of a tune-up keeps the unit operating at its best. An HVAC technician from Bell will catch small issues before they grow into big problems.

Fixing small issues is not only cheaper, but it can also help your unit last longer. Estimates suggest that without tune-ups, a central air conditioner needs replacement after seven years. Not having your unit regularly serviced or tuned-up can even void the manufacturer’s warranty. With regular tune-ups, you can potentially double the lifespan of your unit!

4. Avoid Midsummer Breakdowns

Does it seem like your air conditioner goes on strike in the summer? That’s because Colorado’s hot summer temperatures place a high demand on your AC unit, and any problems will soon exacerbate. Tuning up your air conditioner can help it perform well during the summer months. Skipping a tune-up, unfortunately, increases the odds that an old unit will limp through summer, breaking down precisely when the most intense heat wave arrives.

5. Reduce Your AC Repairs

As your air conditioning system operates, it will develop small problems that eventually turn into larger, more costly repairs. But when you have a technician regularly visiting your home to inspect, clean, and tune up your AC system, they will be able to find those issues and repair them before they have the chance to cause any further damage.

6. Save Money

For many homeowners, saving money is the big motivator. Paying for annual tune-ups for your air conditioner saves money over the unit’s lifetime by increasing efficiency, decreasing repair costs, and extending the air conditioner’s lifespan. It also lowers utility costs for monthly savings .
