Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Booking regular AC maintenance is worth the effort.

Tune-ups keep your AC equipment in Alliance running at its best performance while keeping electricity usage small. It also might even help prolong its life cycle.

While there are a few tasks you can complete on your own, you should call the Experts, like the ones at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, for AC checks and upkeep.

Here are a few steps you can do alone as you prep for summer.

Get Your AC Maintenance Scheduled

Spring is a season of rejuvenation, and to many that involves a hefty amount of indoors, garage and yard cleaning. With the hotter weather right around the corner, it’s also a great idea to add AC maintenance on that listing.

Spring is the best time of year to get your cooling unit freshened and inspected. Waiting to switch it on until the first warm day of the year can be risky. If you have to have repair or replacement, you could be waiting awhile for an appointment. And that may turn extremely unpleasant.

And for those with allergies, being one step ahead with a freshened cooling system will help ensure the finest indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.

Plus, air conditioning maintenance could be required for your equipment’s manufacturer warranty or any extra extended warranty.

Can I Finish a Tune-Up Alone?

There are procedures that you can take to help keep your AC equipment in the top state:

  • Put in a new air filter recommends each month or two. This is especially necessary if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have a cat in your house.
  • Lawn work by the exterior condenser. Check the area is free of grass, weeds or bushes close to your cooling system. We recommend keeping 2–3 feet of clear space. You should also clear any leaves or twigs that have dropped into your equipment, because this might impede airflow.
