The people who put off air conditioning service until they know they have a problem may be the same ones who never take their cars in for a tune up. But could you drive your car more than 200,000 miles without expecting to change the oil? Your central air system does the equivalent of more than 200,000 miles every year, while running about 3,300 hours. Some people go several years without having an air conditioning tune up, trying to save money, but they actually spend more in the long run.
Have Mascot Mechanical’s skilled HVAC technicians keep your central air systems running at or near factory specifications. When your equipment runs efficiently it doesn’t have to run as long or as often to keep your home cool, so you use less electricity.
You save on repair costs, too. We often find small problems that we can fix inexpensively, before they become big problems. For example, a small refrigerant leak can be repaired quickly and affordably, if found early.
NOTE: Freon (R22), the refrigerant used in older systems, is being phased out of production, per law. As a result, the price of Freon is rising rapidly, sometimes tripling in a year’s time. Freon leaks can be very expensive if not detected early.
If a leak is not detected, the coolant will escape and your compressor could overheat and seize up. When you compare the compressor replacement cost of $1,000 or more to our tune up price, the preventive air conditioning service is much less expensive. (For an even better deal, see the CARE plan tab below.)
