Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning regular AC maintenance is helpful.

Maintenance keeps your air conditioning system in Hurricane operating at peak performance while keeping energy needs low. It also could even help prolong its life cycle.

While there are a couple things you can do alone, you should call the Experts, like the ones at Teays Valley Service Experts, for AC examinations and upkeep.

Here are a couple steps you can complete on your own as you prep for warm weather.

Get Your AC Tune-Up Scheduled

Spring is a season of rejuvenation, and to many that entails a large dose of home, garage and yard sprucing. With the warmer temperatures right around the corner, it’s also a fantastic idea to include AC service on that listing.

Spring is the best season to get your air conditioning unit freshened and examined. Delaying to switch it on until the first sweltering day of the summer can be a gamble. If you need service or replacement, you may be waiting a long time for an appointment. And that could get very unbearable.

And for allergy sufferers, being well prepared with a clean AC system will help assure the greatest indoor air quality when it’s pollen season.

Additionally, cooling upkeep can be a requirement for your system’s manufacturer warranty or any other extended warranty.

Can I Do Service Alone?

There are methods that you can take to help keep your cooling system in the ultimate order:

  • Change your air filter. Dirty filters block airflow and may reduce your equipment’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the type of filter you install, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends each month or two. This is especially important if you suffer from allergies or have animals in your residence.
  • Lawn work by the outdoor condenser. Make sure there’s no grass, weeds or bushes near your AC system. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of open area. You should also get rid of any leaves or sticks that have collected inside your unit, since this can block airflow.
