Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As warmer weather starts, you might be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Genoa? Particularly if your cooling system is recently installed or was cooling good last year.

Here’s one approach to think about it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new vehicle and never anticipate to schedule any maintenance for it, such as changing the oil or purchasing new tires.

The same is applicable to your air conditioner. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving components. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving pieces can fail.

Having your equipment examined annually by a Assured Appliance and Heating & Air expert can help spot small troubles before they lead to major meltdowns. (And cause your system to stop running!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your air conditioner is installed outside, it’s more susceptible to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can majorly affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to take care of delicate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your AC efficient. Dirt and yard debris that collect in your equipment can push it to work harder and restrict airflow. Both these problems can cause elevated energy consumption—and a higher utility bill!
  3. It could prolong your equipment’s life span. A clean air conditioner is an efficient one and may even help it run longer. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly cooling costs and in the long-term, as you won’t have to replace your equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps identify minor problems before they become major, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will carefully examine components and perform a series of cooling performance verifications. These all-inclusive processes often allow us to identify troubles before they become major troubles that cause a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver stress-free cooling throughout the summer. After your equipment is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your equipment is ready to give worry-free comfort. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the wisest ways to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty valid. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this tune-up, your equipment is open to premature meltdowns and decreased efficiency.
