Cooling Season Maintenance

Cooling Season Maintenance


AK AIRE Heating & Cooling offers professional ac seasonal tune-ups for Greater Central New Jersey homes. Although it might not feel like it now, you’ll be turning on your central air conditioning unit before you know it! Stay ahead of the game, while saving big, and book a central air conditioning tune up now.

Central air conditioning units are built tough – they continuously service your home, providing you and your family with cool air summer after summer. Although they continue to work hard for your family, the fact is that an air conditioning unit loses approximately 5% of its efficiency each year when it goes without regular maintenance! This loss in efficiency cuts down on the life of your unit, and increases your monthly electric bill. The good news is, the money that you spend on a yearly ac tune up can be quickly recuperated through a longer operating life of your ac unit and decreased utility bills, along with many other benefits.

Yearly tune ups on your central air provides many benefits, such as:

  • Longer life of your air conditioning unit
  • Decreased utility bills
  • Increased operating efficiency
  • Colder air for you and your family
  • Better dehumidifying of your home
  • Prevents costly (and untimely!) repairs
  • Safer cooling of your home
  • Peace of mind

Call and schedule your tune-up for this April or May! Keep in mind, the best time for AC Maintenance is when the weather begins to get warmer and the temp stays steady above 60 degrees.
