Is It Too Late for an Air Conditioning Tune-Up?

It’s already August—and you realize that you forgot to arrange for a maintenance tune-up and inspection for your home’s air conditioning system back in the spring. Maybe… maybe you can skip it this year? It’s probably already too late to have it done, right?

Well, we’re glad to say that you’re wrong! It’s never too late to have an air conditioning tune-up in Brentwood, CA or anywhere else in our wide service area. This is an excellent case of “better late than never,” and there are some benefits of joining our maintenance plan that are good no matter the time of the year.

Why It’s Not Too Late For Maintenance

Maintenance is something an air conditioning system needs to have done annually—even if that means having it done near the end of the summer:

  • Our weather never really gives an AC a vacation: The climate here in Southern California is warm-to-hot much of the year, and our true summer lasts from the end of April right through October. And even outside of that time, hot days can still surprise us. Maintenance ensures the AC is always ready to go deal with hot weather, no matter when it strikes.
  • Missing a year of maintenance means spending more to run an AC: It’s true. On average, each year an air conditioner goes without maintenance, it will lose around 5% of its efficiency—and the drop off will get steeper over time. You’ll pay more for all the time you run your air conditioner than you should.
  • Avoid a system breakdown: The most immediate reason for having a tune-up is to prevent the air conditioner from suddenly shutting down on you during a baking hot day. There are plenty more hot days ahead, and you want your air conditioner ready to get through each one of them.
  • Prevent unnecessary repairs: You don’t want to start spending the money you should be using to enjoy the rest of the summer and the start of fall on repairing your air conditioner. Just the simple precaution of a tune-up—no matter when it’s done—takes care of 80% of the repairs an AC may need.
