The flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, and every outdoor surface is covered in pollen. Spring has sprung in Onslow County and before we know it summer will be here. In between putting away your winter coats and tending the lawn, its important to remember to schedule a check-up on your air conditioner. Just like you wouldn’t take a long trip without having your car checked by a professional, you shouldn’t head into a long summer without having your AC serviced. Here are four reasons you should add an HVAC tune-up to your spring cleaning list.

1. Improved efficiency. According to the EPA, heating and cooling accounts for more than half of the energy use in a typical U.S home. With such a large chunk going to the operation of your HVAC system, its important to make sure your system is running as efficiently as possible.

2. Extended Equipment Life. When your heating and cooling system is operating as efficiently as possible, it can add years to the overall lifespan of the unit. With system replacement costs starting at around $3,500 and up to $10,000 depending on which options fit your home, it is wise to get as much out of your investment as you can.

3. Avoid untimely breakdowns. There aren’t many things worse than having your AC go out on you on the hottest day of the summer. Having regular preventative maintenance performed on your air conditioner or heat pump can greatly reduce the chances of that happening to you. Our trained service technicians can alert you to potential problems before they break. This is why it is best to have your check up done in the spring.

4. Peace of mind and comfort. It only makes sense that when your cooling system is operating properly and efficiently that your home will be more comfortable as well. And you can rest easy knowing that your HVAC unit has been taken care of.
