Details on ‘Regular AC Tune Up’

[Jordan] Just like your car regular tune ups for your air conditioner can help maintain its performance and prevent big future issues. So today I’m here talking with Bob Briley from We Care Plumbing Heating & Air. So, thanks for being with me.

[Bob] Thanks for having me.

[Jordan] Let’s talk about how often you should get a tune-up first.

[Bob] You should get your tune-up every season then we can get a heat tune-up in the winter or an air conditioning tune-up in the summer. Right now the weather’s starting to turn, we’re gonna get hot and you seriously need to do something about your air conditioning. Because just like a car you don’t want to be stranded on the side of the road. The worst thing would be when it’s time to turn on your air conditioner for the first time in the season and it click-click doesn’t work.

[Jordan] Right, yeah and you want to make sure that it’s working properly. I mean you don’t want to be turning the air conditioner on and not have it maintained.

[Bob] And you’re not getting proper efficiency, you’re wasting money, you’re throwing it out the window and you’re not getting your air conditioning working right.

[Jordan] Okay, so we you know we should get them twice a year, once each season to make sure everything’s in working order. So, what goes into that tune-up? When we come out we’re gonna check your system. We’re gonna check to make sure all the amp drawers and all electrical components are working properly. We’re making sure all your wires are working there. You’re gonna make sure your freon is where it’s supposed to be. Freon is like an antifreeze for a car, it cools your car same with the freon.

[Jordan] Yeah you don’t want it to work too hard and overheat. That’ll prevent it from working correctly.

[Bob] Then, you could have catastrophic breakdown of your system and next thing you know, you’re using your air conditioning system, its brakes and then you’re trying to find a service guy.

[Jordan] So, it’s really kind of just like going the doctor get a physical, taking your car in for regular maintenance. You want to make sure that if you are gonna experience larger problems, this is a great way to catch them early because you’re kind of you’re kind of always in tune with how your system is performing and its current status.

[Bob] Right you want to have the confidence that when you flip that switch when you need it your system is going to come on and work properly.

[Jordan] Absolutely. So, how much is a tune-up?

[Bob] They’re $79 right now.

[Jordan] Well that just seems really kind of like an easy, affordable almost an insurance piece of mind to make sure that everything sitting in working order and I can kind of get foresight to see if problems are coming down the road because during a tune-up you’ll be able to say, “You know here’s we think this is maybe coming soon. This part’s looking like it’s going to fail.” And just having that insight is really really nice.

[Bob] It’s kind of like insurance except this thing is you’re actually getting something for the money right there. You’re not paying into something and hoping you don’t use it, you’re actually gonna get a service for it.

[Jordan] Yeah, even better. So, what happens when you come out and do the inspection? How long does it take? What do we need to know?

[Bob] We like to run about an hour and a half to two hours to make sure your systems working properly. We’re not going to come out there and blow and and getting out of there. We’re gonna dig into it and make sure it is working that’s supposed to be.

[Jordan] Thanks so much, Bob. So get your $79 tune-up today. Let We Care Air help you keep your AC in great shape. You can find them right on ApprovedHomePros.com/WeCare.
