As warmer weather starts, you might be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Hudsonville? Particularly if your cooling equipment is newer or was running good last year.

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

The same is applicable to your air conditioner. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving pieces. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving components can wear out.

Having your equipment checked yearly by a West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services expert can help spot small issues before they turn into large malfunctions. (And cause your AC to stop working!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your AC is located outdoors, it’s more inclined to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can greatly affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling an expert to service intricate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate within your equipment can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these problems can create higher energy use—and a bigger utility bill!
  3. It could lengthen your system’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and might even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly electricity costs and over the years, as you won’t have to get new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps determine little problems before they become big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will keenly examine components and complete a set of cooling performance verifications. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to locate troubles before they turn into extensive issues that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free cooling throughout the summer. After your unit is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your equipment is ready to give worry-free air. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the best methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this work, your unit is open to premature breakdowns and limited efficiency.
