As summer winds down, many residents of North Carolina are already looking forward to cool fall nights, campfires, s’mores and all things Pumpkin Spice.

As the seasons change, it can be tempting to look forward to what is to come and leave last season’s maintenance behind.

However, just like you wouldn’t put your lawn mower away without tending to it, if you haven’t already tuned up your air conditioner for the year, now is the time to tend to it.

We’ve put together ten reasons you should maintain your air conditioner before summer is over

10- You Can Save Money. According to major industry studies, an air conditioner that is undercharged by 20% can DOUBLE your utility bills.

9- You Can Extend the Life of Your Air Conditioner. Air conditioners aren’t cheap- and up to 9 out of 10 of them fail prematurely.

8- Your Air Conditioner Can Perform Better. Comfort is the ‘Name of the Game.’ You can have greater peace of mind knowing that your air conditioner will keep you and your family comfortable on even the hottest days.

7- The Environment Will Thank You. A maintained air conditioner is more efficient than an unmaintained air conditioner.

6- You Can Avoid Costly Breakdown Repairs. The chance of a system breakdown increases without regular maintenance. And all Weather Master A/C Tune Ups come with a no-breakdown guarantee!

5- Benchmark Your System. Where are you in the life expectancy of your cooling system? Nobody wants to replace too early. We can tell you how energy efficient your system is by giving you the SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating).

4- Check the Drainage from the Evaporator. An air conditioning system can act as a giant dehumidifier designed to pull moisture out of the air. Comfort comes from maintaining low humidity.

3- Get the Dust Out of Your Air. An important part of your A/C tune up is cleaning your system- both inside and out. Clean air is better than dirty air- don't you think?

2- Save Yourself Time Next the Spring. Maintaining your air conditioner before you turn it off for the season can give you a head start on your to-do list next Spring.
