Temperatures are inching up in Charlottesville and we’re anticipating another hot and humid summer. Now is the time to schedule your air conditioner tune up to ensure your cooling system is in good working order before the worst of the summer heat slams Central Virginia.
Why do I need an AC tune up?
An air conditioner tune up offers clear benefits! Annual tune ups include cleaning and lubrication of air conditioner parts which will both extend the life of your system and improve its efficiency, ultimately saving you money. In addition, our HVAC technicians will look for and repair any minor issues with your air conditioning system, reducing the chances of a major breakdown later in the summer.
Another advantage of an annual tune up is that our service calls generate a historical record of any repairs to your systems, providing you with data to determine when it’s time to replace or upgrade your air conditioner.
Do I really need to schedule now?
Many homeowners wait until their air conditioner stops working altogether on a hot day before they make a call for service. This can leave you in a hot and sticky situation if you must wait for an available service appointment or if parts need to be ordered. Our trucks are well stocked with the most commonly needed parts but a truck can only carry so much! It’s better to schedule a tune up now, at a time that’s convenient for you, rather than waiting for an emergency appointment because of an AC failure.
What should I expect?
When you call Fitch Services for an AC tune-up, we’ll find an appointment window that’s convenient for you. On the day of the appointment, our professional technician will inspect the air conditioner components both inside and outside your home. The technician will clean and tighten wires, measure airflow and refrigerant levels, clean coils, lubricate parts, and identify any parts requiring repair or replacement. Once the technician has completed the tune up and inspection, you’ll be provided with results and recommendations.
What if the technician identifies repair or replacement needs?
If any parts need to be repaired or replaced, the technician will discuss your options. We strive to stock our trucks with supplies for repairs and replacements so we can complete your service in one visit.
Don’t wait – call now to schedule your spring AC tune up to avoid costly air conditioner repairs this summer!
