Why Your AC System Needs Routine Tune-Ups

Posted on

An AC system is a very important part of the home. When the summer months arrive in Germantown, Gaithersburg, Potomac, and Clarksburg, MD, homeowners throughout the area will turn on their AC systems to stay cool and comfortable in their homes. Unfortunately, many of these homeowners will soon discover their systems aren’t working properly.
Here at Michael Bonsby Heating & Air Conditioning, we routinely hear customers ask, “Why is my AC blowing warm air?” This is why AC tune- ups are mandatory before the start of the hot MD months—a tune-up will ensure that your system is working properly when you need it to the most. Summer 2012 was the third hottest summer on record for the U.S., according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Summer 2013 could be just as bad.

Call us today at 301-990-7970 to schedule tune-ups for your system or keep reading to learn about the benefits of regular AC tune-ups.

Benefits of AC Tune-Ups

Routine AC tune-ups will extend the life of your AC system (one of the biggest investments in your home). Additionally, scheduling routine AC tune-ups with Michael Bonsby can save you as much as 30 percent on your monthly energy costs, but it could also save you hundreds of dollars by identifying potential problem areas with your system before they become major problems—and lead to expensive repairs.

To understand the full benefits of routine AC tune-ups, think about the following questions:

  • Would you like to save money on energy costs?
  • Do you want to maximize the life of your expensive AC system?
  • Would you like to improve your AC system’s performance?
