Summer is Coming! Get an Air Conditioner Tune-Up in St. Louis Now!

April 27, 2016

We’ve all experienced the angst that comes from an air conditioner failing on the hottest day of the year. It happens, especially if the system is not kept in top running condition. Your air conditioner is a complicated piece of equipment. In addition to using the furnace blower system for air circulation, the air conditioner adds dozens of additional parts including a compressor, coils, valves and pressurized refrigerant. Making matters worse, air conditioners operate in a harsh outdoor environment working hard in the summer and sitting dormant in the winter. An air conditioner tune-up in St. Louis will help ensure efficient and comfortable operation all summer long.

Not All Tune-Ups are Created Equal

This is the time of year when you are likely being bombarded by offers of cheap, promotional tune-ups. The fact is that many of these tune-ups are nothing more than quick inspections that may be worthless. Or worse, the ‘inspection’ may simply be a setup to sell you stuff. For too many contractors, the only way they make money on a cheap tune-up is to sell repairs or equipment that you don’t need. Before you order a tune-up, ask if the technician visiting your home is on commission. If they are, it might be a red flag that the recommendations you receive are based more on sales goals than what is best for you.
