As warm weather approaches in New Jersey, it’s time to start thinking about your air conditioning system and what you can do to cut monthly energy costs. We all love to save ourselves a little money, and Team Electric, Plumbing & Air offers an annual A/C maintenance to make sure that your cooling system is running as efficiently as possible.
Team Electric’s Annual A/C Tune Up
Air conditioners experience wear and tear, just like any other mechanical system. Like an automobile, your A/C needs regular attention and upkeep to avoid breakdowns. If one part of the system fails, you could be without cooling for days. And don’t these things tend to happen at the most inopportune times? By keeping your unit in top working order with annual maintenance, you can cut energy costs by about 25% and reduce breakdowns by as much as 95%!
Here’s an overview of what our annual 18 point inspection and tune-up of your central air conditioning system looks like. It will give you an idea of how many pieces must work together to create cool air for your home or office.
