How Often do You Need a Tune-Up?
We recommend a minimum service schedule of once per year, just to make sure your AC unit is working properly. Ideally, you’ll want to call us out twice annually for air conditioner tune-up cleaning, usually before and after peak summer months. This allows us to inspect and service your unit before heavy use and make sure it’s still going strong after peak summer temperatures.

When Do You Need AC Tune-Up in Arizona?
In Arizona, your system operates for extended periods of time in order to cool your home. We recommend that you schedule an HVAC tune-up at least once a year. If you notice strange smells or noises coming from your system or your energy bills start to skyrocket, it’s usually an indication that it’s time for a tune-up.
With our maintenance contracts, we can even provide you with a reminder that it’s time for your next tune-up.
How Much Does an AC Tune-Up Service Cost?
An AC tune-up can vary in cost between $75 and $200 – it all depends on the type of unit you have and the overall size.
The tune-up can help to save you a significant amount of money in repairs. So, while it may seem like an added cost, it’s actually one of the best services that you can spend your money on.
When you want to know the cost of a tune-up at PlumbSmart, just call us with the details of your unit. We can provide the cost estimate over the phone at the time we schedule your appointment.
What Happens if Your AC is Not Clean?
AC systems can get dirty – and when there’s added debris on the vents and in the air filter, it can lead to a number of problems with the overall efficiency of your AC unit.
A dirty filter can lead to poor airflow. Over time, the buildup causes the cold air to be trapped inside, which can cause ice to form on the coils. Once that happens, it can cause your AC unit to freeze and become inoperable.
Depending on how long a system remains dirty and clogged, it can cause systems to work harder than necessary – and engines and blowers can give out due to the pressure. When this happens, you may be looking at expensive repairs or the need to replace the entire system.
Clogged filters can also cause your system to work overtime. Your system will run longer to achieve the desired temperature – and this leads to higher electric bills.
All of this can be managed. You can prevent your AC from ever getting dirty by scheduling tune-ups and cleaning. It ensures that a technician changes the air filter, removes the dust and dirt that accumulates on the vents, and checks the overall operating system for issues.
What is the Best Time of Year to Do AC Tune-Up in Arizona?
Since your AC is likely to be used heavier throughout the summer months in Arizona, you want to be sure that a tune-up is performed before you need the system the most. Ideally, you’ll want to schedule your system’s tune-up during the fall or winter months. It ensures that you can get an appointment with ease and, if there are issues, they can be addressed before the weather reaches three-digits.
Of course, any time of the year is acceptable for a tune-up, especially when you’ve just realized that your system needs a little TLC.
At PlumbSmart, we can get you scheduled right away. Our technicians can come out to perform the necessary maintenance and get your system running the way that it should. It will make it easier for you to depend on your system all year long.
