What does an AC Tune-up Include?

Your HVAC tune-up needs depend on your 1) manufacturer's recommendations and 2) your system's components. Thus, the brand and system type play an important role; different systems, such as a traditional air-conditioner or a heat pump, have different maintenance needs.

With this in mind, typically, there are several common elements that can be included on your HVAC tune-up checklist regardless. This includes the following elements:

How Much Does an HVAC Tune-up Cost?

The cost of an HVAC tune-up depends on various factors including size of the job; time of year; and choice of contractor.

Is an HVAC Tune-up Worth It?

In short, yes, an HVAC tune-up is definitely worth it. In fact, tune-ups are typically required by your manufacturer's warranty.

Your tune-ups should be performed twice a year, one in spring and in fall at the beginning of each season, by a licensed Atlanta HVAC contractor.

Ideally, your system has had such regular tune-ups since it was installed. If your system was installed prior to when you became the homeowner, a tune-up may be even more important in this scenario.
