AC Tune-Up in Portland, OR

Summer Is On Its Way

Summer officially begins on June 21st this year. That means it’s time to get your air conditioner ready to go. Is it ready to keep you comfortable during the heat? Scheduling your AC tune-up is the best way to ensure your system is kept running at peak efficiency all season long.

One of the best – and easiest – things you can do this summer is stay on top of cleaning or changing your AC air filter. This is a simple home maintenance task that many people forget about. However, this is one of the best ways to prolong the life of your air conditioning system and it also helps improve indoor air quality. Air filters trap dust, debris, and other buildup that can negatively impact the air you breathe. If you don’t clean or change them regularly, the debris will accumulate and will impact the airflow. This causes the system to work harder, ultimately raising your utility bill.

As you’re doing yardwork outside, also be sure that grass clippings, leaves, or other yard debris is picked up and cleared away from the outside unit. Debris could make its way into the AC system and cause issues, which could cause the system to breakdown. This is inconvenient, uncomfortable, and can be expensive. Avoid this with an AC tune-up.

Call Climate Control

Once you have completed these above tasks on your checklist, call our team at Climate Control to schedule your AC maintenance appointment. This will help you avoid costly repairs or unexpected system breakdowns during the hottest days of summer.

There are also other benefits, including:
  • Better efficiency: Just like any machine, your AC system is prone to wear and tear over years of use. The blower motor will be working hard during the summer months, and if it’s not checked out regularly. If it is strained, it will work harder to keep your space cool and increase your utility bills. However, with regular professional maintenance, your system will maintain its peak efficiency rating.
  • Greater reliability: You rely on your AC system during the summer to keep you cool. With tune-ups, you simply won’t have to worry about problems with the system’s operation. We will check the filters, look at the internal components of the machine, run an energy efficiency check, and ensure everything is working well. If there is an issue, we’ll get it fixed as soon as possible.
  • Longer lifespan: Just like a car needs oil changes regularly, so does your AC system need maintenance. This will keep your system running well for longer, so you don’t risk having to replace the machine earlier than necessary.

Appointment times are filling up, so call us today to get your AC tune-up scheduled! Maybe your system is past its prime and needs replacement. We have options that fit your budget, so call us today to learn more.
