The Importance of a Spring Tune-Up

HVAC Technician Performing an AC Tune-Up

As you may already know, we at Blair offer precision tune-up and professional cleaning to your air condensing unit, but do you know why it's so important?

Here in Palm Springs, summer temperatures can reach up to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Don't wait until summer arrives! Preventative maintenance will ensure you avoid the long waits and higher fees for service that happen during summer peak demand.

You may not be interested because you think your unit is working just fine! After all, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." However, what people most regret in the long run is that by not servicing their unit they run into having to get major repairs or even replacing the unit entirely which could cost thousands upon thousands of dollars - which could have been prevented by getting a spring tune-up. Just like owning a car, proper maintenance is critical to the life and performance of a unit.

Extend Your AC Unit's Lifespan with Regular Tune-Ups

Not only will a spring tune-up of your home’s A/C system ensure you and your family's comfort during the warm months ahead, but it can also extend the life of the unit by up to 15 years versus the 7-year lifespan of a unit left ignored. Another bonus is that preventative maintenance can save you money on your utility bills.┬áHave you already had a tune up done this year? Well, every unit is different. Depending on the time of year you had your tune-up done, anything could have happened - such as spikes in heat which overload the unit as well as monsoon dust storms clogging up your coils affecting the performance and efficiency of the unit.

What Exactly Takes Place During an AC Tune-Up?

Blair's precision tune-up specialist will clean filters if needed, monitor the amps/volts on the system fan motor, lubricate and inspect all moving parts, inspect coils, safety devices and the disconnect box and we'll tighten all electrical connections. We'll also inspect the fan blades, clean the condenser coil and remove debris, and clean debris from all around the condenser. We'll check your compressor for proper amperage and volt draw, leaks, and wiring connections as well.

This very comprehensive service will only take about one to two hours to complete. We have over 45 technicians valley wide to take care of your unit, so give us a call today to schedule a good day for a spring tune-up. Don't delay, summer is right around the corner.
