Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Scheduling annual AC maintenance is worth the effort.

Tune-ups keep your air conditioner unit in Concord working at its top performance while keeping electricity needs small. It also can even help prolong its life expectancy.

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

Here are several steps you can complete on your own as you get ready for warm weather.

Get Your AC Tune-Up Booked

Spring is a time of renewal, and to many that includes a big amount of house, garage and yard sprucing. With the toastier weather near, it’s also a good idea to add AC service on that listing.

Spring is the perfect season to get your cooling system scrubbed and checked out. Hesitating to turn it on until the first sweltering day of the year can be risky. If you have to schedule repair or a new unit, you may be waiting days for a technician. And that can become awfully unpleasant.

And for people with allergies, being ahead of the game with a freshened AC system will help provide the greatest indoor air quality when it’s pollen season.

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

Can I Do Service Alone?

There are procedures that you can take to help keep your AC unit in the ultimate order:

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

Let the Pros Take Care of the Rest

  • Fixing coil fins to avoid decreased airflow.
  • Freshening the outside coil to eliminate any buildup from dirt and grass.
  • Examining controls to double check your unit is switching on, running and shutting off correctly.
  • Evaluating the operating temperature parameters to make sure your unit has the correct refrigeration charge.
