Why should you invest in a system tune-up?

Years ago, the Louisiana Cooperative Extension Service and Louisiana State University teamed with Gulf States Power to identify what benefits, if any, were provided by having your air conditioning tuned-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 impressive. The researchers found that tune-ups saved energy and restored lost capacity. How Much?

Average Monthly Savings from a Tune-Up: $32.76
Average Cooling Capacity Restored: 0.79 Tons

Researchers concluded:
Air Conditioning and Heating maintenance are beneficial to consumers by lowering operating costs, increasing system capacity and extend equipment life.

The above study was conducted years ago on equipment with low efficiencies compared to modern equipment. Modern systems (less than 10 years old) are much more dependent on detailed cleaning and performance enhancing practices to continue running at such high efficiencies. If the above studies were performed today the savings and restored capacity measures would be even greater.
