As an HVAC expert serving the greater St. Louis area, we know firsthand that too many homeowners put off maintenance tune-ups for their heating and cooling systems. Schedules get filled up, best-laid plans get delayed… we understand how busy life can get as the weather warms up every year. 

But take it from the local professionals—regular maintenance for your HVAC system benefits you in the short-term AND the long-term, and the earlier you schedule an AC tune-up this spring, the better prepared you’ll be for the hot summer months ahead.

The Benefits of Early AC Maintenance

  • Peace of mind knowing your AC is ready for the summer
  • Lower electricity bills with higher AC efficiency
  • Extended lifespan and reduced wear-and-tear on equipment
  • Less risk of expensive breakdowns

Many homeowners think if their AC turns on and they can feel cool air coming out of the vents, it must be working fine. In reality, your AC might be underperforming, costing you money in reduced efficiency, and adding wear and tear to your unit that will increase the risk of costly breakdowns and shorten the lifespan of your equipment.

That’s why, even if you can’t tell there’s anything wrong with your AC, it might not be performing optimally behind the scenes. When you schedule an AC tune-up before the cooling season starts, one of SmartHouse’s trained and certified technicians will go over your AC with a fine-toothed comb. If there’s a part that looks like it’s worn out and close to breaking, we’ll talk to you about replacing it beforehand, saving you from more extensive damage to your system and preventing the headache of your AC going out unexpectedly on a hot summer day when you really need it.
