Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Scheduling annual AC maintenance is helpful.

Tune-ups keep your air conditioner equipment in Concord working at its best performance while keeping utility consumption small. It also can even help prolong its life expectancy.

While there are a couple tasks you can finish on your own, you should hire Experts, like the ones at Freschi Service Experts, for AC checks and service.

Here are a couple steps you can do on your own as you get ready for warm weather.

Get Your AC Tune-Up Set

Spring is a time of renewal, and to many that includes a large amount of house, garage and yard freshening. With the hotter weather approaching, it’s also a good idea to add AC checkups on that checklist.

Spring is the perfect season to get your air conditioning system freshened and checked out. Delaying to turn it on until the first warm day of the year can be a gamble. If you have to have repair or installation, you might be waiting days for a technician. And that can become awfully unpleasant.

And for those with allergies, being ahead of the game with a fresh AC system will help provide the finest indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.

Plus, cooling service may be mandatory for your equipment’s manufacturer warranty or any additional extended warranty.

Can I Do Maintenance on My Own?

There are procedures that you can complete to help keep your air conditioner equipment in the ultimate order:

  • Change your air filter. Filthy filters restrict airflow and might lower your unit’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the model you have, the U.S. Department of Energy suggests each month or two. This is very important if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have a dog in your home.
  • Lawn upkeep near the outdoor condenser. Make sure there’s no grass, weeds or bushes close to your cooling system. We recommend keeping 2–3 feet of clear room. You should also clear any leaves or twigs that have collected inside your equipment, since this may block airflow.
