Just like your car needs regular oil changes and tune-ups, your air conditioning unit also needs regular maintenance – especially in the sweltering Charleston heat. Purchasing a high-quality, energy-efficient unit simply isn’t enough to take on the Southern summer months.
In order to keep the cool air flowing, the local experts at Preferred Home Services suggest regular tune-ups and repairs – which can also extend the lifespan of your unit. AC units aren’t meant to last forever, but if they’re properly maintained, they can last up to 15 years.
Over time, dust + dirt builds up in your unit, hindering its efficiency up to 5%. So, when you want to cool your home down, the unit works harder than necessary. In turn, your home’s energy costs will go up.
If it’s been more than a year since your AC unit has been serviced, it’s time to call Preferred Home Services. Their 21-point tune-up is specifically designed to reduce energy costs and system breakdowns. With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, their team of local HVAC professionals is taking extra precautions + safety measures while respecting customer comfort levels during house calls.
