Air Conditioning Tune Up Before You Leave on Vacation

Posted in: Air Conditioning Repair

Air Conditioning Repairs, South Home AirIf you’re planning to take off on vacation and go somewhere this summer, you’re probably planning a little time away from your Dayton home to enjoy a little time off work. That means your home may sit empty for a week or two, or even more.

Before you leave, you’ll want to be sure that your home is left in good order and that nothing major happens while you’re away. But you’ll also want to think about when you return home and how exhausting vacation time can really be.

Whether you have a lot of activities planned for your time away or not, traveling can leave you tired. In fact, many people say for humor that they need a vacation just when they come home from one! That means when you return home you want the comfort of home at your fingertips.

If your air conditioner isn’t properly prepped before you leave, you may have a hard time finding that comfort if it breaks down when you turn it on after arriving home. That’s the last thing you’ll want to have to deal with! Suffering in the heat and kicking your air conditioner won’t do any good at that point. But you can prevent a breakdown and other problems, ensuring your return home goes just as planned.

Order an Air Conditioning Tune Up Service

You may think this is a frivolous service designed to creep into your pocketbook unnecessarily, but in all honesty it’s not. Consider a vehicle and all the moving mechanical parts that need tuning, lubricating, and cleaning on some sort of regular basis. Your air conditioner is no different. If it sits idle, it’s going to have bear quite a load turning on again if it’s not in the best shape.

In general, a tune up checks all the parts for weakness, a number of efficiency tests are performed, and the system is cleaned up and lubricated. This ensures it is doing its best to provide you with cool air.

Before you leave, have an air conditioning tune up done and you’ll be glad you did when you get home. Your system should also stay on while you’re gone.

You want to set the temperature where it turns on while you’re away. Otherwise, moisture will permeate the house and cause problems like warped drywall ceilings, textures peeling, paint or wallpaper start coming off, and moldy carpeting.
