Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As spring begins, you might be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Alice? Even if your air conditioning system is newer or was cooling well last summer.

Here’s one way to look at it. You wouldn’t get a brand-new car and never have to book any maintenance for it, such as getting new oil or getting new tires.

The same applies for your air conditioning. It’s equipment that consumes fuel and has moving parts. Like a automobile, it can develop leaks and its moving parts can malfunction.

Having your system checked seasonally by a Rescue Heating & Air pro can help spot small troubles before they turn into large malfunctions. (And cause your AC to stop working!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your cooling system is located outside your home, it’s more inclined to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can negatively impact your system’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, you should call an expert to maintain complicated internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard debris that collect within your unit can make it work harder and restrict airflow. Both these issues can cause elevated energy consumption—and a more expensive cooling bill!
  3. It could lengthen your unit’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and could even help it last for a greater period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly cooling bill and in the long-term, since you won’t have to buy new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps pinpoint little problems before they become large, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will keenly look at pieces and carry out a cycle of AC performance verifications. These detailed measures often allow us to find issues before they turn into big troubles that lead to an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee trouble-free operation throughout the season. After your system is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your unit is ready to provide worry-free air. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the wisest approaches to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers require yearly maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this tune-up, your equipment is vulnerable to early breakdowns and limited efficiency.
