When is the Best Time for an AC Tune-Up?

June 12, 2020 | Blog

It’s easy for your air conditioner to feel like something that doesn’t need much attention – unless it stops working. However, getting an HVAC tune-up ensures that the system is in working order before you need it to survive the summer months.
We’re not saying you should get an AC tune-up each month, but having a professional inspect the system a couple of times a year can make a big difference. Here is everything you need to know about when and why you should get an AC tune-up.

When to Get an HVAC Tune-Up?

The best times for an HVAC tune-up are twice a year, one before summer and one before winter. In the late spring, having a professional inspect the system before it gets too hot will prevent you from having to wait on a big AC repair in the heat of summer.
You should also get a furnace tune-up before winter for this same reason. If anything needs fixing, you won’t be caught during a cold snap without a working heater in your home.
At Big Mountain Heating and Air, we offer a seasonal tune-up for only $99. Our experienced tune-up specialists check and test every aspect of your HVAC system to make sure it is ready to use when you need it. If we discover a larger problem during the tune-up, our specialists can provide solutions and schedule you for repair.

Why Get an HVAC Tune-Up?

Telling you to get an AC tune-up wouldn’t be worth much if we didn’t back up our claim with sound reasoning. Tune-ups can save you a lot of money and extend the life of your AC.
If something is wrong with your HVAC system and it doesn’t get fixed during a tune-up, running your system with a problem could cause even more damage and cost you more money in the long run. Catching problems during a tune-up can also help your system last longer because it doesn’t run as long with undiscovered issues – and tune-ups also ensure your HVAC system is running at peak efficiency.

What Our Customers Have To Say

Good Rebates

This is a review for a complete HVAC system replacement from Big Mountain. I started at the SMUD website looking for the best rebate program and found a list of contractors there. I vetted out companies that had a lower number of completed jobs per the SMUD rebate program data.

Very Professional

Had my A/C go out yesterday, called Big Mountain today and they had a serviceman in my area of Lincoln, he was here within a half hour and fix my unit in a very professional manner, and the cost was reasonable. I was very impressed with the company and the serviceman.

I had a appointment with them between 1-3 and one of their staff members called me and kept me updated when they will arrive which was nice. Steve arrived on time and was really nice for explaining what could the cause be. My ac fan was working but cool air wasn’t coming out.
