Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Scheduling annual AC maintenance is worthwhile.

Maintenance keeps your AC system in Longmont operating at its best performance while keeping utility consumption down. It also may even help prolong its life span.

While there are a few things you can finish on your own, you should work with Experts, like the ones at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, for AC examinations and service.

Here are a few steps you can take on your own as you prepare for summer.

Get Your AC Service Set

Spring is a period of renewal, and to many that entails a big portion of indoors, garage and yard freshening. With the warmer temperatures approaching, it’s also a fantastic idea to include AC tune-ups on that list.

Spring is the best time to get your AC unit freshened and checked out. Waiting to turn it on until the first hot day of the year can be risky. If you need service or installation, you might be waiting a long time for a technician. And that can turn awfully unbearable.

And for those with allergies, being ahead of the game with a freshened cooling system will help assure the greatest indoor air quality when it’s pollen season.

Also, AC maintenance might be mandatory for your unit’s manufacturer warranty or any other extended warranty.

Can I Do Service on My Own?

There are steps that you can take to help keep your air conditioner unit in the ultimate condition:

  • Replace your air filter. Dirty filters limit airflow and could reduce your system’s efficiency. While replacement frequency depends on the model you install, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends each month or two. This is particularly necessary if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have pets in your home.
  • Lawn maintenance around the outdoor condenser. Check there’s not any grass, weeds or bushes close to your cooling system. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of open area. You should also get rid of any leaves or twigs that have fallen into your system, since this could limit airflow.
