Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As warmer weather rolls around, you could be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Hamilton? Particularly if your air conditioning system is recently purchased or was cooling good last summer.

Here’s one way to think about it. You wouldn’t get a brand-new car and never have to schedule any work for it, such as getting new oil or getting new tires.

The same affects your air conditioning. It’s a piece of equipment that uses fuel and has moving components. Like a vehicle, it can develop leaks and its moving components can malfunction.

Having your unit inspected annually by a Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC specialist can help find little problems before they turn into huge malfunctions. (And cause your AC to stop working!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your cooling system is installed outdoors, it’s more inclined to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can majorly impact your equipment’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we suggest calling a pro to service delicate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that collect within your unit can force it to work harder and decrease airflow. Both these troubles can cause higher energy use—and a bigger utility bill!
  3. It could lengthen your system’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and might even help it run longer. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly energy costs and over the long run, because you won’t have to get new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps find minor issues before they become large, costly issues. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will carefully inspect pieces and carry out a cycle of AC performance tests. These detailed processes often allow us to find problems before they create big issues that cause a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver trouble-free cooling throughout the season. After your equipment is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your unit is set to provide worry-free cooling. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the smartest ways to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty valid. Most manufacturers call for regular maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this maintenance, your equipment is at risk for advanced failure and lowered efficiency.
