Be Prepared for Spring: Tune-Up Options to Consider

Posted by

air conditioning tune-up In many parts of the country, the idea that hot months are ahead is a difficult one to grasp. However, no matter how cold it is today, warm months are coming. At AC-World we always suggest that our clients plan their regular tune-up and maintenance months in advance to ensure they have time to make the important decisions they need to make.

Is now the time for an upgrade?

One of the most important things to consider is whether or not it’s time to upgrade your system. Many homeowners hang on to their current system until it breaks and a replacement is an absolute necessity. The truth is that this method, while it may seem to save money, can actually cost thousands of dollars in the long run.

First of all, today’s ductless air conditioning systems are much more efficient than older central AC units. In fact, they can save you significantly on your utility bills, especially if you’ve been running an old system that gets terrible efficiency.

Second, planning ahead and replacing your AC unit before you need to can help you avoid the high costs of an emergency. For example, what would you do if your AC completely broke down on the hottest day of summer? Would you stay in your sweltering home or would you check into a hotel? Would you take the time to research all the best AC options or would you simply choose whatever central AC or through the wall AC unit your local HVAC company had in stock?

If you choose a unit simply because it’s what’s in stock, then you not only run the risk of getting the wrong unit for your home that will then have to be replaced sooner than it should be, but you’ll likely pay much more for it. When you shop with AC-World, you’re working directly with the manufacturer. We provide wholesale prices for both companies and individuals.

Your best tune-up option may be total replacement

If you’ve had your HVAC system installed within the past few years then you may not be ready for a total overhaul. However, if it’s older than that, or it’s not as efficient as it used to be, then it may make more financial sense in the long run to upgrade to a better system rather than paying to have it tuned up.
