Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As spring starts, you might be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Warrenton? Even if your AC system is recently purchased or was running good last year.

Here’s one approach to look at it. You wouldn’t purchase a brand-new automobile and never expect to request any work for it, such as putting in fresh oil or putting on new tires.

The same affects your air conditioner. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving pieces. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving pieces can fail.

Having your system checked seasonally by a Schraer Heating & Air Conditioning professional can help spot little issues before they turn into large meltdowns. (And cause your AC to stop working!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your cooling system is placed outdoors, it’s more susceptible to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can greatly affect your system’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling an expert to service intricate internal parts.

  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate inside your system can make it work harder and restrict airflow. Both these problems can create higher energy consumption—and a higher utility bill!

  3. It could prolong your equipment’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and may even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly energy costs and over the years, as you won’t have to install new equipment as quickly.

  4. It helps locate little problems before they turn into big, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will closely examine parts and complete a cycle of cooling performance tests. These detailed procedures often allow us to locate troubles before they turn into large troubles that result in a costly repair bill.

  5. It helps ensure worry-free operation throughout the season. After your equipment is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your equipment is ready to give worry-free air. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the best methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.

  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this service, your equipment is open to early breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
