|Why a Tune-Up?|
Every homeowner wants to lower their monthly utility bills and have a comfortable home that's as energy-efficient as possible. Getting seasonal tune-ups will save you money in the long run.
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.
