How an AC Tune-Up Saves You Money

Published on: May 2, 2012

If you have never requested air conditioning service and maintenance from a Carrier® factory authorized dealer before, spring is the perfect time to consider it. A Carrier® factory authorized dealer is a heating and cooling company that has met rigorous standards in regards to customer satisfaction levels, technician excellence and business practices. The Carrier® Company only authorizes approximately five percent of air conditioning service and maintenance companies nationwide as a Carrier® factory authorized dealer. When you schedule an appointment with a local air conditioning service and maintenance company, you can feel confident in the service you will receive from a Carrier® factory authorized dealer.

Annual air conditioning service and maintenance is vital to the functioning of your unit in many ways. A service technician completes approximately 20 points of maintenance on your air conditioner to ensure that it is ready to handle the demands of summer ahead. Some of the services that are typically performed include changing the air filter, adjusting refrigerant and Freon levels, checking for loose wiring, ensuring that tubing isn’t blocked with debris and much more.

During the tune-up, your service technician also looks for other issues that could compromise the functioning of your air conditioner at a later point. If he or she notices services that should be performed, you will receive a written recommendation and cost estimate. You are under no obligation to follow through with scheduling service, but you will most likely receive a discount if you do. That is because most air conditioning service and maintenance companies provide discounts, priority scheduling and other benefits to customers who purchase an annual preventative maintenance service contract.

If the service technician recommends that you consider replacing an old or inefficient air conditioner, he or she can provide you with information about the numerous options you have available with Carrier®.
