Make sure your air conditioning can do the job with maximum efficiency and performance with an annual air conditioning maintenance tune-up from Hometowne Energy!

What are the benefits of air conditioning maintenance?

Just like you wouldn’t go years without changing your car’s oil and filter or getting tune-ups, you shouldn’t go years without getting an annual tune-up for your home’s air conditioning system.

Your air conditioning worked hard last summer, so it will require some maintenance before you use it this summer.

Hometowne Energy has a team of trained and skilled technicians who can tune up your central air conditioning system annually to ensure it functions perfectly. This will give you peace of mind knowing that your home will be cool and comfortable during the summer regardless of any heat waves.

When you choose us for a maintenance tune-up, these are some of the things we do:

There are several benefits to receiving an annual professional tune-up. Here are a few examples.

Prevent breakdowns – Regular maintenance can help avoid 80% of air conditioning system breakdowns and repair bills. We conduct thorough inspections during our tune-ups, allowing us to identify problems ahead of time and prevent costly repairs for you.

Lower your energy costs – To save money on cooling costs and ensure your air conditioning system runs efficiently, it is important to maintain it. Since air conditioning typically makes up around 50% of your summer energy usage, our service and our service plans are a cost-effective solution.

Protect your investment – Properly maintaining your home’s A/C system will enhance its performance and efficiency, while also ensuring that it lasts for many years. This is a wise investment in the comfort and value of your home.

Protect your HVAC system warranty – Many manufacturers require professional yearly tune-ups to keep your air conditioning system within warranty. Failure to do so may result in expensive repairs after the warranty expires. Investing in preventive maintenance now can save you from future headaches.

Do I need a new A/C system?

On average, a central air conditioning system has a lifespan of 15 years. Upgrading your home’s A/C system can offer several advantages such as improved comfort and efficiency. Additionally, modern central air conditioning systems can work seamlessly with smart home technology and thermostats.

If you decide to replace your home’s air conditioning, now is the time to do it before summer makes our schedule tighter. Here are some things to consider as you decide on replacing your AC.

Performance – How did your A/C do last summer? If it didn’t operate efficiently and drove up your energy costs, or if you are noticing you need more frequent repairs, it may be time to replace it.

Different cooling needs – If you have built a home addition or adding living space like a finished attic since your current A/C was installed, or if you are planning to, the added demand may be too much for it. Now is the time to make an upgrade for improved performance and efficiency.

Your A/C uses R-22 Freon refrigerant – As of the end of 2020, the United States has implemented a ban on the production and importation of R-22 Freon. If your air conditioning system utilizes R-22 Freon, you can expect prices for the limited R-22 Freon supply to continue to soar. By investing in a new AC system, you can leave that cost behind!

Make sure your home’s air conditioning will keep your home cool and comfy this summer! Contact Hometowne Energy today to schedule your annual maintenance tune-up. And don’t forget to ask about our affordable service plans!
