|Why a Tune-Up?|
In 1983, the Louisiana Cooperative Extension Service at Louisiana State University teamed up with Gulf States Power to identify what benefits if any were provided by an air conditioning tune-up. A series of homes were heavily instrumented, data was collected over time, tune-ups were performed and data was collected again.
The results of this landmark study were staggering. The researchers found that tune-ups saved energy and restored lost capacity.
Average Monthly Savings from a Tune-Up = $32.76
Average Cooling Capacity Restored = 0.79 Tons
The researchers concluded that:
Air conditioning maintenance benefits the consumer by lowering his operational costs, increasing his comfort control capacity and is believed to extend equipment life.
