Consistent air conditioning tune-ups are necessary for keeping your HVAC unit at peak performance, particularly during the hot Earth City, MO summer months. No one wants to see their AC break down on a 90℃ or 100℃ day. Regular maintenance can help keep this from becoming reality by locating and repairing any defects before they threaten your home comfort. The aim of air conditioning maintenance is to keep your system running through the summer, save on energy usage and utility bills, and to increase the lifespan of your system.

You can find a full list of the services rendered in our AC maintenance here. Generally speaking, your AC specialist will:
Ideally, with some precision tuning your technician will be able to confirm that your AC system is in good enough health to make it through the next cooling season. However, if the technician notices any defects, they’ll provide recommendations for how to repair it and give you an estimate. If you hire SmartHouse, most of the time we’ll be able to repair the issue on the spot once you approve our estimate.
Your AC system is going to need repairs at some point, even with annual tune-ups. If you see any of the below symptoms and don’t have a scheduled maintenance visit in the near future, it’s most likely time to call an expert Earth City, MO HVAC company for AC repair:
While there are some basic maintenance tasks you can do without help, such as checking your circuit breakers, most AC repairs should be handled by a licensed technician. Attempting to fix complicated issues on your own could end up costing you more money, or worse, injuring you or someone in your household. If you’re not sure whether you need to call a pro, it’s always best to be safe and call a licensed Earth City, MO HVAC technician. You can learn more about when it’s best to DIY vs. calling a pro here, or read through our “Emergency AC Checklist” below for some safe troubleshooting tips to try if you’re AC unit is having issues.
When you call SmartHouse for your HVAC tune-up and/or repair services, your technician may say you’d be better off with a newer, more efficient air conditioner – if it makes sense for you and your Earth City, MO home.
There are several different reasons why it might be better to decide on a new AC installation rather than invest in maintaining your existing system. The first is age. While other HVAC contractors recommend AC replacement after 10 years, a unit that’s had annual tune-ups can live up to two decades. The likelihood of a sudden failure increases as the system gets older. If your system is getting up there in age, it’s a good idea to schedule an AC tune-up to see whether or not your unit can make it through the strain of another summer.
The second reason is if the repairs are so expensive that a newer unit would be a budget-friendlier option. Spending hundreds of dollars every year to replace refrigerant is a bad investment. Similarly, with more expensive repairs like a failed compressor, it’s often more cost-effective in the long run to replace your unit instead of trying to keep your current one going. While a single repair itself may be less expensive tomorrow, in time you’ll end up losing money because of the unit’s lower energy efficiency.
While any homeowner may initially be wary of a complete overhaul, there are sound reasons why we sometimes recommend Earth City, MO homeowners replace their unit rather than have it repaired:
Overall, installing a new air conditioning system can be wise if your current unit is behind the times, inefficient, or just beyond repair.
