Fortunately, the groundhog was correct this year, and we had a very short and mild winter. Even with that blessing, I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to open the windows and let fresh air flow into the house to welcome the mild spring weather.
With the threat of the COVID-19 stay at home order looming, and with 80- and 90-degree temperatures just around the corner, this would be a great time to get your air conditioning tuned up to handle the additional daytime occupants in your home.
Air Conditioning Tune-Up
This is a great time of year to enjoy lower energy bills, since we can throw open the windows and enjoy the fresh, clean air of springtime again. Most homes in the area will have virtually no HVAC costs, since you don’t really need the AC yet. But that time is coming in the near future, and this is the prime time to get your air conditioning equipment tuned up and ready for the coming heat.
The best way to prepare your home’s AC system is with our annual air conditioning tune-up service. This is a ritual we perform for many customers every spring. If you ignore it, the costs might be many, both in the form of higher electric bills and potentially expensive repairs.
Schedule Your AC Tune-Up Today and Save
Because we’ve had some unusually cool days and nights this spring, many of our customers haven’t taken advantage of the “lull in the action.” This is a great time to get your annual AC tune-up completed, well before the high temperatures arrive. One summer and the higher temperatures arrive, our technicians schedules will be pushed to its limit, along with your AC system. Every professional HVAC contractor will be extremely busy handling emergency repairs for the people who didn’t take care of their annual spring AC maintenance.

Why Spend Money on an AC Tune-Up?
Any type of routine maintenance on your heating and air conditioning system has a direct return on your investment. Here is a short list of ways you will save your hard-earned dollars by investing in AC maintenance.
Increase Your Air Conditioning System’s Efficiency
Our complete air conditioning tune-up and check out, performed in the spring, involves testing, cleaning and adjusting components of the AC system. This ensures peak efficiency when your air conditioner is running full blast every day. AC units that aren’t well-maintained run much less efficiently, using more energy and gobbling up those utility dollars. The best way to maximize your energy dollars is to have the system run at optimal levels, and it helps your home get, and stay, cooler faster.
Avoid Unwanted Emergencies
Many AC system failures can be avoided by performing preventative maintenance on them. By maintaining your Air Conditioner with an annual Tune-Up, you and your family will be way ahead of the game. Once the temperatures get into, and stay in the 80’s and above, and your AC equipment is running full blast, the chances for a failure increase exponentially. The cost of a tune-up is also much lower than the cost of an emergency service call in the middle of the night.
Small Repairs Prevent Big Expensive Problems
Residential heating and air conditioners are very complex systems, requiring training and experience to maintain and repair them. But if you have one of our experienced, certified service technicians check out your AC equipment, you can prevent something small from turning into a big bill. When one of our service techs performs the annual AC tune-up, that will allow us to diagnose and repair and minor issues before they turn into big, expensive ones.
Well-Maintained Air Conditioning Systems Live Longer
As we’ve said before, when it comes to air conditioning maintenance, it’s a case of “pay me something small now” or something bigger later. If you hire an AC contractor like Dor-Mar to maintain your AC system, you’ll add years to its life, and life to its years. An air conditioner that is running optimally is going to extend its life, potentially saving you thousands of dollars in replacement costs during the time you own your home.
Strategically Plan for AC Replacement
Of course, no air conditioning system lasts forever. And newer systems are technologically more complex, using more microprocessor and smart components than ever. When you have a Dor-Mar Air Conditioning service tech checking the system every spring, you can safely plan for the system’s replacement well before it’s needed. Of course, a system could fail at any time for a myriad of reasons, but our certified, experienced AC Service Techs can give you an idea of how much longer your system can be expected to last. And being prepared means you can save for the eventual replacement.
Trust the Air Conditioning Professionals at Dor-Mar
As a knowledgeable homeowner, you can perform some basic routine maintenance tasks yourself (like changing filters often). Read more about that here. But when it comes to doing a thorough air conditioning tune-up, it’s a job best left to the pros.
There are a number of things that can go wrong if an inexperienced homeowner attempts to do their own AC tune-up. One of the simplest parts of the tune-up is cleaning the condenser, but we highly recommend leaving that task to the pros… you can inadvertently damage the delicate fins or the coils inside the system. Damaged or bent fins could lower the system’s performance, and there is the chance of an electric shock for someone that doesn’t know their way around the guts of an AC unit.
Finally, having a professional HVAC technician performing the tune-up allows us to see little issues than an uneducated consumer might miss. When you have your air conditioning equipment put through the paces with a tune-up and check out by one of our licensed, certified professional technicians, you can rest assured the system will perform optimally and serve your air conditioning needs longer.
