Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

May 08, 2020

As warmer weather rolls around, you may be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Lafayette? Even if your air conditioning system is newer or was cooling just fine last season.

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

The same is applicable to your AC. It’s a piece of equipment that needs fuel and has moving parts. Like a automobile, it can develop leaks and its moving components can malfunction.

Having your system inspected yearly by a AC Sales expert can help locate small issues before they turn into large malfunctions. (And cause your unit to stop working!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your AC is located outside, it’s more vulnerable to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can majorly impact your system’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we suggest calling a pro to take care of complicated internal parts.
  2. It keeps your AC efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that collect in your equipment can force it to work harder and lower airflow. Both these problems can cause increased energy needs—and a bigger energy bill!
  3. It could lengthen your equipment’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and could even help it run longer. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly cooling expenses and in the long-term, since you won’t have to install new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps spot small problems before they become major, expensive issues. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will closely examine pieces and perform a cycle of air conditioning performance checks. These detailed procedures often allow us to find problems before they lead to large issues that lead to an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free comfort throughout the summer. After your AC is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your equipment is set to provide worry-free air. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the wisest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers expect regular maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this tune-up, your unit is open to advanced meltdowns and limited efficiency.
