Air Conditioning System Maintenance
According to Energy Star, a division of the EPA, “Dirt and neglect are the #1 cause of heating and air conditioning system failure.” Most people wouldn’t dream of driving their car without performing regular oil changes and tune-ups, but they will go year after year without servicing their furnace and air conditioner. Your heating and AC unit, like your car, requires regular maintenance to prevent unnecessary repairs and maximize efficiency.
Don’t wait until your furnace doesn't ignite, or your air conditioner stops cooling before you call for service. At this point, you will typically pay more (because it’s an emergency call) and have to wait (because it’s usually on the coldest or hottest day of the year). Having your HVAC system put on our yearly maintenance schedule is guaranteed to pay for itself in lower repair costs, less aggravation, and more efficient operation. As a matter of fact, we promise your HVAC system will operate more efficiently, or we will give your money back!

Why Perform Maintenance on your HVAC System?
Your heating and air conditioning system is one of the most expensive appliances in your home. And just like your car, your HVAC system has crucial components that need to be professionally maintained and inspected on a bi-annual basis.
Lower Utility Bills
By keeping up on maintenance, you will ensure your heating and air conditioning system will perform at peak efficiency year round, saving you hundreds on energy costs. According to the EPA, "without regular maintenance, an air conditioner loses about 5% of its original efficiency for each year of operation." That means that a 13 SEER AC Unit may be functioning like a 9 SEER within just a few years of skipped maintenance! Studies show that routine maintenance on your heating and air conditioning system can save up to 20% on energy bills.
Prevent Costly Repairs
By allowing Air Care to service your AC and heating system regularly weaknesses can be identified and repaired, failures prevented, and damages minimized. It is also important to maintain your equipment to ensure that it is operating safely. Demanding use through extreme weather in cities like Chino Hills, Corona, Yorba Linda, and Rancho Santa Margarita places a large amount of stress on your HVAC system causing minor, underlying, issues to turn up as large, costly, problems.
Extend the Life of your HVAC System
Just like your car, you can significantly increase the life expectancy of your heating and air conditioning system by performing inexpensive tune-ups. Studies show that with routine maintenance you could increase the life of your HVAC unit upwards of 30% to 50%. The life expectancy for an HVAC system that IS NOT maintained is 8-12 years, depending on the geographic area and usage it could be substantially lower. On average, a heating and air conditioning system that is properly maintained has a life span of 15 to 20 years; again, it depends on how often it is used and how well it is maintained.
Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I have my unit serviced?
Bi-annually. Most manufacturers recommend a bi-annual tune-up and inspection, AC during the spring and furnace during the fall. These tune-ups are FREE for members of our Home Service Agreement.
How long does a Tune-up take?
It depends; if your system is routinely maintained the tune-up and inspection will last anywhere from 60-90 minutes. On the other hand, if your system is not properly maintained it could take much longer. We had one air conditioning tune-up that took over 4 hours!
How much does an inspection cost?
The standard cost for our tune-up is $89. We offer a $57 “Comprehensive Tune-up and Inspection” deal for qualified homes in Orange County and the Inland Empire. Check our SEASONAL SPECIALS page for details.
