Ask a homeowner if they get their air conditioning unit tuned up and you will usually get a distinct “Yes, every year” or “No, never”. Then ask them how often they break down. It’s not a coincidence that the “No Tune-up” people will sometimes say that they have frequent repairs or comfort issues. Air conditioning units have come a long way in recent years in terms of efficiency and comfort. As they get more precise, maintenance on those units has moved from an option to a must.

If anything convinces someone that they need regular air conditioning unit tune-ups, its the fact that they will help get the most life out of a unit.

An AC tune-up can’t guarantee that you wont have a break down, but it goes a long way in heading off those breakdowns and giving you the chance to make preventive repairs before they happen at an inconvenient time

If you are using the same AC company year after year then you have a chance to build a relationship on trust that you can rely on when a major repair or replacement is needed. There is no one more distraught than a homeowner in the middle of summer hiring an AC company that they know nothing about to invite into their home to fix their AC unit.
