Berkeys Air Conditioning Tune-Up / AC Tune-Up Specialists in DFW
On average, a central air conditioning system can run about 3,300 hours per year. That adds up to a lot of wear and tear – the equivalent of driving a car 214,000 miles.
Most people wouldn’t think of driving a car that far without an inspection or maintenance, yet many go for years at a time without tuning up their central air conditioners. Fortunately, local air conditioning companies offer affordable and convenient tune-up and maintenance services. Homeowners who do not have routine air conditioning and maintenance performed on their systems are losing thousands of dollars on ac repairs, rather than saving money.
Air conditioning / AC tune-ups help equipment run at or near original factory specifications, depending on age and overall condition. When cooling equipment runs efficiently it doesn’t have to run as long to do the job, saving you money. And, when equipment doesn’t have to work harder, it lasts longer.
HVAC System Maintenance (tune-ups) can provide even bigger savings for some homeowners. Often, our technicians find small problems that can be fixed quickly and inexpensively during the HVAC System Maintenance Visit. If neglected, these same issues can cause quite a dent in your wallet and result in the need for costly air conditioner repair services.
For example, a refrigerant leak can be repaired easily and affordably if found early; however, if the leak goes undetected, it can drain the refrigerant and burn up the compressor. A compressor can cost $1,000 or more to replace. Also, before the compressor fails, it will run inefficiently for a while, resulting in hundreds of dollars more on your electric bills.
