Is Your Cooling System Ready?

Written by: Metro Air

June is almost here, and the warm, humid days of summer will arrive before you know it. Now is the time to get your air conditioning system inspected and ready to go. Here’s why.

#1: Tune-ups prolong the lifespan of your system.
Air conditioning systems are a big investment. It will provide many years of comfort if you take care of it. Unfortunately, many homeowners forget about the importance of preventative maintenance and we see a lot of costly repairs or full system breakdowns due to neglect. Basic maintenance by our professionals ensures that your system is working efficiently. We will also make sure that all the unseen internal components are functioning well. That means there is less risk of an unexpected breakdown or repair.

#2: Tune-ups provide peace of mind.
The inside of your home gets hot without air conditioning. Without it, you’ll be uncomfortable. What happens if your air conditioning breaks down on an 85-degree day? You’ll be stuck inside with hot, muggy air, and you may not be able to get an HVAC repair scheduled fast enough. Regular tune-ups ensure everything is functioning as it should, so you aren’t left with a surprise breakdown or expensive part replacement. That gives you the peace of mind you need going into the warm summer months.

#3: Tune-ups improve energy efficiency.
A system that’s running at peak efficiency uses less energy. That translates to saved money on your utility bill each month. During your tune-up appointment, our technicians will clean the coils, blades, and other internal parts. Clean systems that can operate and move as intended generate clean, cool air with the highest efficiency.

Minnesota weather is changing, and the heat will be here soon. Is your cooling system up to the challenge of keeping you cool?  Maybe your system simply can’t handle another Midwest summer. Well if that’s the case, now is the time to consider an air conditioning replacement. Let us help find the right system for your home’s layout and your budget!  So call us today for information on getting a free quote for a new system or to schedule your maintenance appointment!
