As spring rolls around, you may be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Mount Hope? Even if your air conditioning unit is recently installed or was running just fine last season.

Here’s one way to look at it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new car and never expect to request any service for it, such as putting in fresh oil or buying new tires.

The same applies for your AC. It’s equipment that consumes fuel and has moving components. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving components can break down.

Having your equipment checked yearly by a Appalachian Heating expert can help spot little issues before they lead to large malfunctions. (And cause your system to stop running!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your air conditioner is installed outdoors, it’s more susceptible to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can majorly affect your system’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a specialist to service complicated internal parts.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate inside your unit can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these issues can lead to higher energy needs—and a higher energy bill!
  3. It could prolong your system’s life span. A clean air conditioner is an efficient one and could even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly electricity costs and over the years, as you won’t have to replace your equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps identify little issues before they become big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will keenly examine parts and complete a series of cooling performance verifications. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to identify issues before they turn into extensive problems that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee worry-free comfort throughout the season. After your unit is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your equipment is ready to deliver worry-free air. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the smartest methods 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 maintenance, your unit is open to advanced breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
