Like almost everything in life from your car to your teeth, your air conditioning system experiences wear and tear. A yearly checkup helps ensure you spot problems early, and can count on your cooling system for years to come. In fact, air conditioner manufacturers and top home improvement sites recommend yearly maintenance.
Air Quality Dunrite has the expert technicians it takes to thoroughly clean and inspect your central air conditioning system and ensure it works at its best.

Benefits of AC Tune Ups
Does investing in yearly maintenance checks for your central air conditioner pay off? It sure does! While you can replace filters yourself, regular cleaning and inspection by a licensed professional can:
Extend the working life of your air conditioner.
When poorly performing parts are replaced as needed, nothing has to work harder than it needs to. That means your air conditioner lasts longer and you have fewer new units to buy in the long run.
Keep you cooler on those really hot days.
If your equipment is kept in good working order, it will just plain work better.
Protect the environment.
When refrigerant levels get low, the remaining liquid evaporates more easily. Once it’s in the atmosphere, it contributes to ozone depletion (even though modern HCFCs are way better than the CFCs air conditioners used to use).
Save money on repair bills.
As a rule, emergency repairs will cost more than than regular checks.
Save money on electricity.
If your AC is low on refrigerant, has a bent fin, has a dirty evaporator or condenser coil, or has a part that’s about to fail it can drag down the efficiency of your entire cooling system.
Air conditioners that are struggling will be noisier – sometimes a lot noisier.
Guard against damage from leaks.
One of the main ways your AC helps keep you cool is by removing humidity from your home. Normally the excess water is drained away, but blockage in the line can cause a backup that can cause water damage in your home.
By trying to “save money” on regular servicing, you may in fact be spending more money in the long run.
