Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As warmer weather rolls around, you could be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Grove City? Even if your cooling system is recently installed or was cooling good last year.

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

The same affects your AC. It’s a machine that uses fuel and has moving parts. Like a automobile, it can develop leaks and its moving parts can wear out.

Having your system examined seasonally by a Air Quality Solutions expert can help find minor problems before they become large malfunctions. (And cause your system to stop running!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your air conditioner is installed outside your home, it’s more inclined to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can greatly decrease your unit’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we suggest calling an expert to service intricate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your AC efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that build up in your equipment can force it to work harder and decrease airflow. Both these problems can lead to higher energy use—and a more expensive utility bill!
  3. It could prolong your equipment’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and could even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly energy bill and over the years, as you won’t have to get new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps determine minor issues before they become major, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will closely examine parts and carry out a set of cooling performance tests. These in-depth measures often allow us to locate issues before they become major troubles that cause an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure trouble-free operation throughout the summer. After your AC is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your unit is set to provide worry-free air. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the smartest ways to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers expect seasonal maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this tune-up, your equipment is open to early failure and lowered efficiency.
