Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As warmer weather starts, you might be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Abilene? Even if your cooling system is up-to-date or was cooling well last summer.

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

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

Having your unit inspected annually by a Abilene Air-Tech Inc professional can help spot small issues before they lead to major breakdowns. (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 air conditioner is placed outdoors, it’s more prone to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can majorly impact your unit’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, you should call a specialist to take care of intricate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate within your unit can force it to work harder and restrict airflow. Both these problems can lead to elevated energy needs—and a higher cooling bill!
  3. It could extend your system’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and may even help it last for a greater period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly cooling expenses and in the long-term, because you won’t have to install new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps spot little problems before they turn into big, expensive issues. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will carefully inspect parts and perform a set of AC performance checks. These all-inclusive measures often allow us to find troubles before they create extensive troubles that cause a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free comfort throughout the warmest days. After your system is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your equipment is set to provide 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 in place. Most manufacturers expect yearly maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this work, your unit is open to advanced meltdowns and decreased efficiency.
