The last thing you need to worry about in the middle of the summer is your air conditioning breaking down. In Boise, typically the summers are short, hot, dry, and mostly clear with heat that can reach up to 101°F. That’s why it’s important that your home HVAC (Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system is running at its peak. We suggest having a professional come over and do an annual Boise AC tune up before the extreme heat arrives.
Another factor to consider when deciding whether to tune your AC or not is the potential for health risks. Homes with poor quality air conditioning can worsen asthma problems and allergies, but even with those to consider, these are only two of the many health issues that can come from contaminated and improperly maintained AC units. If you have asthma or are prone to bad allergic reactions, having your AC tuned up, or at least checked regularly, will greatly reduce health risks. By taking care of your AC unit, your home becomes a safe environment to relax and take comfort, especially for those with breathing difficulties.
Keeping up with AC maintenance leads to longer lifespan of your machine, improved efficiency, and lower utility costs. These benefits help save money instead of spending it. By not properly maintaining their HVAC system, homeowners can find themselves paying $500 to $4,000 for central air conditioning when their unit goes out. Be aware that the final cost could also include a new unit, additional installation items, and the professional’s installation rates.
Ultimately, you will need experts that can not only tune up your AC unit in a timely manner, but also provide affordable and reliable service.
