Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Booking yearly AC maintenance is helpful.

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

While there are a couple jobs you can do by yourself, you should hire Experts, like the ones at Teays Valley Service Experts, for AC checks and upkeep.

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

Get Your AC Tune-Up Scheduled

Spring is a period of revival, 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 checkups on that listing.

Spring is the best season to get your cooling equipment freshened and inspected. Delaying to flip it on until the first sweltering day of the summer can be a gamble. If you need a fix or replacement, you might be waiting days for an appointment. And that could get very unpleasant.

And for allergy sufferers, being one step ahead with a clean AC system will help provide the finest indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.

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

Can I Do Maintenance Alone?

There are procedures that you can complete to help keep your cooling system in the ultimate state:

  • Put in a new air filter. Dirty filters block airflow and may lower 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 house.
  • Lawn work near the exterior condenser. Make sure there’s no grass, weeds or bushes near your AC system. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of open room. You should also clear any leaves or branches that have collected inside your unit, as this can block airflow.

Let the Experts Manage the Rest
