HomeServe Offers Central Air Conditioner Tune-Up Discount

And DIY Tips for Homeowners to Help Maintain AC Units & Save Energy


STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- With summer just around the corner, HomeServe USA (HomeServe) a leading provider of home emergency repair service plans, today announced that it is offering central air conditioning system tune-up specials to residents within select regions in the Boston metro area and throughout Rhode Island. Yearly tune-ups can keep your central AC unit running efficiently, saving you money on your monthly electric bills and reducing repair costs.

"Homeowners should consider an annual air conditioning tune-up in the spring to prevent a breakdown during the hot summer months," says Tom Rusin, CEO of HomeServe USA. "AC units that are not properly maintained run less efficiently, and you don't want to find yourself facing an air conditioning problem when the temperature outside is unbearably hot."

HomeServe also offers the following do-it-yourself tips to keep your air conditioning running efficiently:

  • Replace filters at the beginning of the summer season and then every 30-60 days. This will keep air cleaner, save up to 5% in energy consumption annually and extend the overall life of the cooling and heating system.1
  • Check the batteries in your thermostat, and make sure the thermostat clock and program is set properly.
  • Clear debris (leaves, trash, shrubbery) from around the outside of the condenser unit. Debris by the unit decreases efficiency and can wear out your system faster.
  • Consider installing a digital thermostat, which can help increase your heating & cooling energy savings by approximately $100-$150 a year.2

A professional tune-up goes beyond these basic precautionary measures, offering a comprehensive 12-point check and preventative maintenance, to ensure you stay cool and comfortable this summer and possibly trim your electric bill. In addition, only a professional can use gauges to check if a unit is fully charged with refrigerant. Small leaks in refrigerant cause the system to work harder to cool your home.

Eligible homeowners can schedule a professional central air conditioning tune-up with HomeServe through June 31st via a special online offer for $89, more than 45% off the regular price of $165.
