Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Booking regular AC maintenance is worthwhile.

Tune-ups keep your AC system in Girard working at peak performance while keeping utility consumption small. It also could even help lengthen its life expectancy.

While there are several jobs you can complete by yourself, you should work with Experts, like the ones at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, for AC examinations and upkeep.

Here are several steps you can take alone as you prepare for summer.

Get Your AC Maintenance Set

Spring is a period of revival, and to many that involves a large dose of indoors, garage and yard cleaning. With the toastier weather approaching, it’s also a good idea to put AC checkups on that listing.

Spring is the perfect time to get your cooling equipment freshened and inspected. Hesitating to switch it on until the first warm day of the year can be dicey. If you have to schedule a fix or a new unit, you may be waiting awhile for a technician. And that may get awfully unpleasant.

And for allergy sufferers, being ahead of the game with a freshened AC system will help assure the greatest indoor air quality when it’s pollen season.

Also, air conditioning service can be a requirement for your system’s manufacturer warranty or any other extended warranty.

Can I Complete a Tune-Up Myself?

There are procedures that you can complete to help keep your cooling system in the prime state:

  • Change your air filter suggests each month or two. This is particularly necessary if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have pets in your house.
  • Lawn work around the outdoor condenser. Check the area is free of grass, weeds or bushes near your AC unit. We recommend keeping 2–3 feet of clear room. You should also get rid of any leaves or branches that have fallen into your unit, as this could limit airflow.
