Before you know it summer will be here and you will rely on your air conditioner to keep you cool and comfortable in your home. At least that what you are assuming. You will turn on your air conditioner the first time it gets too hot and cross your fingers that it works.

Instead of just “hoping” your air conditioner works all summer, you could have it inspected and the odds go way up that it will perform well. You see, during your AC tune-up, your air conditioner will be inspected, lubricated, cleaned and any minor repairs will be performed which will increase the chances that you will stay cool all summer without any problems.

Here are a few reasons why you should call Total Care Heating and Air in San Bernardino and have then service your AC.

Lower Your Utility Bills

A tune-up will keep your AC unit operating at peak efficiency. This means it won’t work as hard as it could and consume less energy to operate. This is a good way to keep your energy bills under control.

Avoid Those Inconvenient Breakdowns

There is never a good time for your air conditioner to break down, but with your luck, it will break down at the worst possible moment. You can imagine a scenario in which your air conditioner breaks down on the hottest night of the year when you are hosting a dinner party for your boss and their spouse in hopes of making a really good impression and getting a promotion.

What you get instead is a lame excuse as to why they can’t stay and a hasty retreat to a place that isn’t so hot. So much for that promotion.

An air conditioning tune-up doesn’t guarantee your AC won’t break down, but it puts the odds that it won’t break down in your favor.

Extended Life

Stop for a moment and think about how expensive an air conditioning system is. Now think about how many times you will have to replace your air conditioner over your lifetime. The longer your air conditioner lasts, the fewer times you will have to have it replaced, which will save you a ton of money.

Even by expanding the life of your AC unit just a few years can save you thousands of dollars over the years. And the best way to extend the life of your unit is by having it tuned-up every year.


What good is a warranty if it cannot be used because you failed to comply with its stipulations? Many manufacturers require the owner of their unit to have it maintained on a regular basis. The warranty might become void if it hasn’t been properly maintained. If this happens, then you are responsible for any repairs that need to be done.

Peace of Mind

Wouldn’t you rather enjoy your summer and not worry that your air conditioner could conk out at any moment? Sleep better at night because you are cool and comfortable and because you had your AC tuned-up and you know that it is working at peak efficiency.
