Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As warmer weather rolls around, you could be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Tucker? Particularly if your cooling system is newer or was cooling just fine last summer.

Here’s one method to think about it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new vehicle and never expect to schedule any maintenance for it, such as getting new oil or getting new tires.

The same applies for your air conditioner. It’s a piece of equipment that needs fuel and has moving components. Like a vehicle, it can develop leaks and its moving components can break down.

Having your equipment checked annually by a ACS Heating and Air Conditioning expert can help locate little issues before they lead to large meltdowns. (And cause your air conditioning to stop running!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your cooling system is placed outdoors, it’s more prone to accumulating dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can negatively affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling an expert to take care of intricate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate within your equipment can push it to work harder and restrict airflow. Both these issues can lead to higher energy consumption—and a more expensive utility bill!
  3. It could lengthen your system’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and could even help it run longer. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly energy costs and in the long-term, because you won’t have to install new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps identify small issues before they turn into large, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will keenly examine parts and perform a series of AC performance tests. These all-inclusive measures often allow us to find troubles before they turn into extensive problems that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure trouble-free operation throughout the season. After your system is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your system is well-prepared to provide worry-free cooling. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the smartest ways to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers call for yearly maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this work, your system is open to early meltdowns and limited efficiency.
