Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As warmer weather starts, you could be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Hudsonville? Particularly if your air conditioning equipment is up-to-date or was working good last summer.

Here’s one approach to think about it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new vehicle and never have to request any maintenance for it, such as changing the oil or putting on new tires.

The same is applicable to your air conditioning. It’s a piece of equipment that consumes fuel and has moving components. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving components can wear out.

Having your system checked annually by a West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services professional can help find small troubles before they lead to major meltdowns. (And cause your equipment to stop working!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your AC is located outdoors, it’s more susceptible to accumulating dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can majorly affect your system’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we suggest calling a specialist to maintain intricate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that collect inside your equipment can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these troubles can create increased energy use—and a more expensive cooling bill!
  3. It could lengthen your system’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and might even help it last longer. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly energy expenses and over the long run, since you won’t have to replace your equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps identify little problems before they become major, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will keenly look at pieces and perform a set of cooling performance tests. These detailed measures often allow us to locate problems before they lead to large problems that cause an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free cooling throughout the summer. After your equipment is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your system is set to give worry-free comfort. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the best approaches to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers call for yearly maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this tune-up, your unit is open to premature breakdowns and limited efficiency.
