Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As springtime rolls around, you may be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Macon? Especially if your AC system is newer or was working just fine last season.

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

The same affects your air conditioning. It’s a machine that consumes fuel and has moving parts. Like a vehicle, it can end up with leaks and its moving parts can wear out.

Having your equipment checked yearly by a Air Temperature Control pro can help spot little troubles before they lead to huge meltdowns. (And cause your AC to stop operating!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your AC is located outdoors, it’s more prone to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can majorly affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, you should call an expert to service complicated internal parts.
  2. It keeps your AC efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate within your system can push it to work harder and lower airflow. Both these problems can lead to increased energy use—and a higher utility bill!
  3. It could lengthen your system’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and might even help it last longer. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly cooling expenses and over the long run, since you won’t have to replace your equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps find little troubles before they lead to large, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will keenly look at pieces and complete a series of AC performance checks. These detailed procedures often allow us to locate problems before they turn into major problems that result in a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure trouble-free operation throughout the summer. After your equipment is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your equipment is well-prepared to provide worry-free air. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the wisest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers expect regular maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this maintenance, your system is at risk for premature failure and limited efficiency.
