Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As springtime begins, you might be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Alice? Particularly if your air conditioning system is recently installed or was cooling good last season.

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

The same is applicable to your AC. It’s a piece of equipment that consumes fuel and has moving parts. Like a vehicle, it can develop leaks and its moving parts can break down.

Having your system examined seasonally by a Rescue Heating & Air technician can help locate small troubles before they lead to huge malfunctions. (And cause your system 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 outdoors, it’s more inclined to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can majorly lower your system’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, you should call an expert to service complicated internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that collect in your equipment can make it work harder and restrict airflow. Both these issues can cause higher energy consumption—and a more expensive cooling bill!
  3. It could lengthen your equipment’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and might even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly electricity bill and in the long-term, since you won’t have to buy new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps pinpoint minor problems before they become large, costly troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will carefully examine pieces and carry out a cycle of air conditioning performance tests. These detailed measures often allow us to find issues before they turn into extensive troubles that lead to an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee trouble-free operation throughout the season. After your AC is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your unit is ready to provide worry-free comfort. 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 going. Most manufacturers require annual maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this tune-up, your equipment is vulnerable to early meltdowns and lowered efficiency.
