Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As spring rolls around, you might be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in East Bernard? Particularly if your AC unit is recently installed or was running good last summer.

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

The same affects your AC. It’s a piece of equipment that needs fuel and has moving components. Like a car, it can get leaks and its moving pieces can wear out.

Having your unit checked annually by a E.B. Air, LLC professional can help find minor problems before they turn into huge malfunctions. (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 cooling system is installed outside, it’s more vulnerable to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can greatly affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to take care of intricate internal components.
  2. It keeps your AC efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that build up within your equipment can push it to work harder and restrict airflow. Both these issues can cause elevated energy consumption—and a higher energy bill!
  3. It could lengthen your equipment’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and might even help it run longer. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly energy expenses and over the long run, since you won’t have to get new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps pinpoint minor issues before they lead to big, expensive issues. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will keenly inspect parts and perform a cycle of air conditioning performance tests. These detailed measures often allow us to find issues before they lead to big issues that cause an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure trouble-free comfort throughout the summer. After your system is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your equipment is well-prepared to deliver worry-free comfort. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the smartest approaches to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers require seasonal maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this tune-up, your system is open to premature breakdowns and limited efficiency.
