As warmer weather starts, you might be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Hudsonville? Especially if your AC unit is up-to-date or was running well last summer.

Here’s one way to look at it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new automobile and never have to request any service for it, such as putting in fresh oil or getting new tires.

The same applies for your air conditioner. It’s equipment that uses fuel and has moving components. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving pieces can malfunction.

Having your equipment checked seasonally by a West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services technician can help spot little issues before they become large malfunctions. (And cause your unit to stop working!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your air conditioner is placed outdoors, it’s more vulnerable to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can majorly affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to service intricate internal components.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate within your unit can make it work harder and restrict airflow. Both these troubles can cause higher energy needs—and a higher cooling bill!
  3. It could extend your equipment’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and may even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly electricity costs and over the years, as you won’t have to buy new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps pinpoint little problems before they become big, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will closely examine components and complete a series of air conditioning performance tests. These in-depth procedures often allow us to find problems before they turn into big problems that result in a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee worry-free operation throughout the season. After your AC is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your equipment is ready to give worry-free air. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the wisest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers call for regular maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this tune-up, your equipment is open to premature breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
