Schedule Some TLC for Your AC Today!
Adulting can be hard. And really really unfun. I mean, scheduling an air conditioning tune-up just won’t set your pulse a-thumping like booking an Airbnb on the beach for your annual getaway.
We’re not offended by your lack of enthusiasm for our chosen profession, but we’re here to tell you, East Nashville, our dispositions are sunny and we’re a lot, lot cheaper than an iffy condo five blocks away from the Gulf next to a sketchy oyster bar’s dumpster.
We think preventative maintenance for your heating and cooling unit is important, but if getting your air conditioning unit tuned up for the summer still isn’t high on your daily to-do list, here are 8 reasons why all of us here at Cumberland Cooling think it should be.
#1: Extend the Life of Your Air Conditioning Unit
If recent weather trends here in East Nashville continue, odds are pretty good that you’ll turn your AC sometime this month and leave it on until, oh, November. The longer your air conditioning unit lasts, the happier and more comfortable you’ll be. On the other hand, the more you run your neglected AC, the shorter its lifespan. So schedule regular AC checkups to keep your unit in tip-top working condition as long as mechanically possible.
#2: Improve Energy Efficiency
Routine AC tune-ups help maintain your unit’s energy efficiency. When your air conditioner is running at peak efficiency you’ll keep your utility bills down, help out the environment, and make sure that everyone in your house is as cool as they think they are.
#3: Get the Most out of Your Investment
Although not everyone in East Nashville owns a package unit (an all-in-one heating and cooling system), there are enough of them out there an annual check-ups is more or less a twofer. Plus, your air conditioning unit is a major investment! The longer your AC is pumping out the chill, the better your overall investment.
#4: Honor Thy Warranty
With any luck, your HVAC unit came with a warranty. And you registered for it. (As a side note, whenever we install a heating or cooling system, we take care of registering the unit for you.) Did you know that many manufacturers require you to maintain the unit? Whelp, regular AC check-ups take care of that pesky requirement while minimizing the likelihood of experiencing catastrophic equipment failure. A win-win, if we do say so ourselves.
#5: Enjoy the Cool…Consistently
A cooling unit that’s not functioning correctly is going to have a tough time keeping your home cool and maintaining comfortable humidity levels. If the temperature varies from room to room there may be a reason — and we’ll suss it out.
#6: Minimize Emergency Repairs
Our rates are reasonable (even the Googling public agrees) no matter when you need us, but a $75 preventative maintenance service call is going to be a lot cheaper than an emergency unit replacement. Think of us as like a routine prophylactic, trip to the dentist. That preventative cleaning is going to be a heckuva lot cheaper (and less painful) than recovering from your dentist drilling into your neglected, cavity-ridden maw.
#7: Save Money With Preventative AC Maintenance
Nearly all of the reasons to schedule your spring AC check-up boil down to this: for $75 you can help ensure that your air conditioner lasts longer, that you pay less each month for utilities, that you get the most out of your very pricey investment, that the manufacturer actually stands behind what they say they’re going to stand behind, and that you’ll avoid costly emergency repairs. So, in the long run, for $75 you’ll save yourself some headaches and some cash.
#8: Learn Something New and Do it Yourself Next Year
Maybe AC inspections really are your thing. If that’s the case, we’re happy to give you a quick “what-to-look-for” tutorial so your annual air conditioning maintenance can maybe become a biennial kind of thing. Go ahead, book an extra night at that “beach” condo.
We’re currently scheduling and performing spring preventative maintenance visits. We’ll inspect, clean, and adjust your cooling system to make sure it lasts a good long time, runs at optimal efficiency, and most importantly, keeps you nice and cool. AC maintenance is just $75 for the first unit. If you have more than one cooling unit on your property, the second is just $50.
