How can you tell if you need an AC tune up?

AC units behind houseGenerally, you need an AC tune-up once every year to keep your system running efficiently and effectively. If you have a service plan with your AC service provider, that tune up is most likely included in your plan. But, whether you have a service plan or not, your AC system can often let you know that it’s time to get a tune up with some of the following signs:

  • Temperatures are very different in different rooms – While some rooms may get more sun than others, if there’s a noticeable difference in temperature in rooms throughout your home, your AC system isn’t running effectively and it’s time for a tune up to help you determine the reasons why.
  • Strange or unusual sounds coming from the AC system – This could indicate a deeper problem but a tune up will help you determine what the issue may be and prevent any potentially more expensive repair problems before they happen.
  • Warm – not cool – air is coming out of vents – A tune up will help discover some of the many reasons why this may happen, which is important as it means your system is not running efficiently and you’re wasting money.
  • Vent airflow is weak -- If airflow from vents is not blowing normally, an air duct could be leaning or a filter may be clogged. Resolving these issues is usually a normal part of most AC tune ups.
  • Humidity fluctuation and mold-type odors – This may indicate a leak, blockage or broken drain tube in your outdoor compressor. A tune up can prevent these problems before it makes your home unhealthy or requires more expensive repairs.
