March AC Tune-Ups: Get Your AC Ready for the Big Dance

Nowadays, you can bet on anything from a coin toss to the color of the Gatorade celebration. But you should never trust your luck on whether your air conditioning unit will be ready when you need it.

March is the perfect time to get that AC tune-up for the big dance. Here’s why:

1. You’re the One Seed

Many homeowners don’t think about their air conditioning system until the outside temperatures make it uncomfortable. March is a transition time for HVAC professionals who are likely less busy and can schedule a tune-up request that is most convenient for you.

2. Bring Your A-Game

Your AC has been taking a backseat to the winter starter—the heating system in your home. During that time, dust and debris could accumulate in the unit, and last year’s use may have taken a toll on the AC components.

When it’s time for your AC to take center court, ensure it’s already primed and ready by getting the system inspected, lubricated, and cleaned.

3. Enhance Your Indoor Air Quality Game

March can bring some great days with mild temperatures, making this the perfect time to start moving some fresh air into the home that has been sealed tightly against frigid temperatures.

In addition to installing window screens, March is the right time to replace your air filters, clean your ducts, and improve your home’s indoor air quality, making it a healthy environment for you and your family.

4. Bring The Energy (Efficiency)

Teams that go far in the NCAA Basketball Tournament bracket make the best use of their team’s energy. The same goes for your AC unit.

A March tune-up ensures that when your system gets called into the cooling game, it performs optimally. Your technician should check refrigerant levels, test the thermostat function, and calibrate the system to work with maximum energy efficiency.

5. Maintain Your Performance

Allow your system to warm up before heading to the big dance. A tune-up in March allows your technician to determine if your system is cooling your indoor air temperatures to the level requested and maintaining that level. This consistency will help to avoid temperature bouncing when the outdoor air temps fluctuate.
