As the calendar turns to August here in the Kansas City area, we can see the end of summer on the horizon.
It also means your air conditioner has been working overtime, especially since summer started early in May this year.
Because of that long cooling season, a late season air conditioner tune-up can make some sense. Here are a few reasons why.
Dog Days of Summer Still Need Air Conditioning
There are still at least 4 to 6 weeks of summer remaining. Because of our early summer this year, your air conditioner has been running more than usual.
And when it runs that much, several things can happen:
- The condenser coils get dirty because the fan pulls in dust and dirt.
- The fan motor and blade are running more, which can lead to failure.
- Your indoor filter gets dirty quicker because that motor is running more often.
An air conditioner tune-up can check all of those items and get your system running clean again for the summer stretch run.
An AC Tune-Up Can Actually Help Furnace Season
When you have your air conditioner tuned-up, the technician can also check the blower motor on your furnace to make sure it is running well.
This benefits you in heating season because he can discover any issues that may be happening before it breaks down on a cold night.
In addition, the regular filter change always benefits your system because it traps the dirt and grime and keeps it away from the moving parts of your furnace.
