4 reasons you should not get an annual air conditioning tune-up, Pippin Brothers, Lawton, OK
May 10, 2012

As summer nears in Lawton, Oklahoma, it may seem like everyone is talking about the importance of annual air conditioning tune-ups. In fact, even ENERGY STAR, the U.S. Department of Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and local utilities recommend the yearly tune-ups.

But is it all hype? Do you really need an annual air conditioning tune-up. Our answer is no: at least, as long as you agree with one or more of the following reasons.

You Enjoy High Energy Costs
While your air conditioner was partaking in its yearly rest this past winter, it was also collecting dust on some of its key components. A tune-up cleans these parts, allowing your system to perform at its peak efficiency and saving you money on utility costs. But if you enjoy your high energy bills, then there is no reason you should get an annual air conditioning tune-up.

You Love Paying for Preventable Repairs
Each year we get calls from Lawton area residents with air conditioning problems that could have been easily prevented with regular maintenance. During a tune-up the technician saves you money by detecting small problems that could lead to bigger and more costly repairs in the future.

While we have not yet run across someone who enjoys having their air conditioner break down in the middle of the summer, we are willing to concede that there may still be someone out there who needs something to spend their money on. If that's you, you should not get an annual air conditioning tune-up.

You Want Your Air Conditioner to Have a Short Lifespan
Do you drive your vehicles without ever changing your oil so that you can have an excuse to purchase a new engine? If so, you can do the same thing to your cooling system by avoiding an annual air conditioning tune-up. Tune-ups extend the lifespan of your air conditioner, thwarting your opportunity to spend thousands of dollars on a new equipment.

You Need a Way to Void Your Manufacturer's Warranty
Don't you hate it when your system is under warranty and the manufacturer pays for repairs? Then we have good news for you: by neglecting regular maintenance on your air conditioner, you will void most manufacturer's warranties. Then you will be able to pay for those repairs yourself.

These are just four reasons you should not get an annual air conditioning tune-up, but we are sure there are many more. By neglecting the regular maintenance your cooling system needs, you benefit by having higher energy bills, costly repairs, a shorter system lifespan, and a voided warranty.
