Tune-in and Tune-up your AC System

Posted By MyGuy || 28-Jun-2011

It's that time of year, unfortunately, when the hot weather is upon us. It's so hot, I saw a bird picking up a worm with a potholder. We all rely on our AC systems to keep us comfortable, but some of you might not have had your system tuned-up yet. Besides changing your filters regularly (at least every other month), everyone should be getting a tune-up. First and foremost, there's the safety reasons. The U.S. Fire Administration recommends getting your system tuned-up to prevent electrical fires. Secondly, it saves you money.

It save you money not only in costly repairs, but on your utility bill as well. A tune-up can save as much as 30% on your utility bill. Your utility company strongly recommends annual maintenance. And if your system is newer, it's especially important, as all manufacturer's warranties require you to prove regular maintenance or they can deny warranty coverage.

It's important that you do your research when contracting with a company to do your AC tune-up. You'll want to ask questions as to how thorough the maintenance is. A good tune-up will include 30-40 things they are checking (eg. "40 point" tune-up). Also important is the price. Too low a price, or free tune-ups, can be a red flag as to the quality and possibly other ulterior motives. We've all heard the phrase, "You get what you pay for".

It's soon going to be so hot, chickens will be laying hard-boiled. Contact MyGuy for your AC tune-up today.
