Is It Time for an AC Tune-Up? 

Is It Time for an AC Tune-Up? 

The scorching days of Texas summer are coming sooner than we think. We all rely on our trusty air conditioners to keep us comfortable. But when was the last time you gave your AC a thorough check-up? Answer the following five questions to help you determine if it’s time for that crucial AC tune-up.

  1. Are your energy bills on the rise? 

Is there a noticeable spike in your monthly energy bills? If so, your air conditioner might be working harder than necessary. If a unit isn’t maintained properly, efficiency drops, and energy usage soars. If you’ve been experiencing unexpected energy cost increases, it might be a sign that you’re home is due for an AC tune-up.

  1. Does your AC take longer to cool than it did before?

Is your air conditioner taking longer than usual to reach your desired temperature? A sluggish cooling performance could result from various issues, including clogged filters or refrigerant leaks. A timely service appointment from a qualified Southern Air Mechanical technician can identify and address these problems, ensuring your unit cools your space effectively.

  1. Are there strange noises coming from your AC?

Is your AC suddenly making unfamiliar noises, such as banging, squealing, or rattling? Unusual sounds can indicate underlying issues with your system. A professional inspection and AC tune-up can pinpoint the source, address any needed repairs, and prevent potential damage before it escalates.

  1. Have you noticed poor air quality in your home? 

Is the air in your home feeling stuffy, or have you noticed you need to dust more often? A neglected AC can contribute to poor indoor air quality, circulating allergens, and contaminants throughout your space. Regular maintenance can significantly improve the air you breathe. Cleaning or replacing your filters is the first step you can take to help your air quality. 

  1. Has it been more than a year since your last AC tune-up? 

Do you know when your AC was last inspected by a professional? Manufacturers typically recommend annual maintenance to keep your unit in top condition. Regular maintenance can extend the lifespan of your system and prevent unexpected breakdowns, saving you from costly repairs in the long run.

If you answered mostly yes, it’s time for an AC tune-up

If you found yourself nodding yes to these questions, it’s time to schedule a much-needed AC tune-up. Efficient and well-maintained air conditioners keep you cool, save money, and contribute to a healthier living environment for you and your family.

Remember, preventive maintenance is essential to avoiding major AC malfunctions and ensuring your system operates at its best. If you answered mostly yes to the questions above, don’t delay scheduling a professional maintenance appointment. Your comfort, energy savings, and peace of mind are worth the investment of keeping your AC in tip-top shape.

I am extremely happy with the service I received from Southern Air. I loved their price and I really appreciated that they came when they said they would, I did the job precisely the way we discussed that it would be done.

Martha D.Fort Worth, TX

They were on time, delivered what was promised and my attic/house ended up cleaner that before they got there. They even took time to train me on the new electronic thermostat and provided a full year of service with my new system. I've recommended them to my neighbors who are going have them fix some shoddy installation on their system.

The salesman was knowledgeable, courteous and friendly. I received three different bids the difference between Southern Mechanical and the others was Overall Value and the best price. I even ended up replacing all my sheet metal old ductwork with new R-6 flex. You just can't beat caring attitude of the installers, office staff and my sales guy Jamie Wallace.

Thanks Jamie and Wade."
