What’s the Difference Between a Tune-Up and a Service Call?

Air conditioner with maintenance tools in residential back yardThis is a common question that we hear from our homeowners. We find people confusing the two terms “tune-up” and a standard “service call.” We’re going to walk you through the key difference between the two today.

We’re always a team that prides ourselves on providing you with the right type of information. You can always come to our team members and expect a friendly professional ready to answer your questions. We’re here to exemplify this type of care today. We understand air conditioning in Ogden, UT.

The Key Difference

So here’s the breakdown: when we’re talking about tune-ups, we’re talking about maintenance; and when we’re talking about a service call, we’re talking about things like repair, replacement, or installation.

This is something that you should know. Sometimes, we hear from homeowners about a tune-up when they’re really talking about a service call or vice versa. We want to iron out the details because it makes the process of scheduling so much easier.

The Benefits of Professional Service

The thing about professional service is that it’s beneficial no matter what you’re scheduling—maintenance, installation, repair, and replacement.

Why? It’s because professional service is backed by experience, expertise, and licensure. You don’t have to worry about anything when you come to us. You’re not going to get the type of repair that helps you limp along through the rest of the season and then breaks down the next time you need to use your air conditioner. We’re the team that finds the source of the solution rather than eliminating the symptoms of the trouble.

We’re able to do this because we’re professionals. We understand the importance of your time and we make sure that we don’t waste it. We want you to really weigh the benefits of professional service. Make sure you come to us for all the services you need.
