Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Booking routine AC maintenance is helpful.

Tune-ups keep your air conditioning unit in Orlando running at its top performance while keeping energy consumption small. It also could even help prolong its life span.

While there are a few things you can complete by yourself, you should call the Experts, like the ones at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, for AC examinations and service.

Here are a few steps you can do by yourself as you prepare for warm weather.

Get Your AC Tune-Up Booked

Spring is a time of renewal, and to many that involves a hefty dose of indoors, garage and yard freshening. With the hotter temps right around the corner, it’s also a good idea to add AC tune-ups on that listing.

Spring is a great time of year to get your air conditioning equipment freshened and examined. Delaying to switch it on until the first sweltering day of the season can be risky. If you have to schedule service or installation, you might be waiting days for an appointment. And that may get very unpleasant.

And for those with allergies, being well prepared with a fresh cooling system will help assure the finest indoor air quality when it’s pollen season.

Plus, AC service can be a requirement for your system’s manufacturer warranty or any extra extended warranty.

Can I Do a Tune-Up Alone?

There are methods that you can do to help keep your air conditioning equipment in the prime condition:

  • Change your air filter. Clogged filters restrict airflow and can reduce your unit’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the kind you install, the U.S. Department of Energy advises each month or two. This is especially necessary if you deal with allergies or have pets in your residence.
  • Lawn work near the outdoor condenser. Check there’s no grass, weeds or bushes near your air conditioning unit. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of free space. You should also get rid of any leaves or twigs that have fallen into your unit, since this might block airflow.
