Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As warmer weather starts, you might be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in South Beloit and Belvidere? Particularly if your AC system is recently purchased or was cooling good last year.

Here’s one approach to think about it. You wouldn’t get a brand-new automobile and never expect to request any work for it, such as getting new oil or putting on new tires.

The same affects your air conditioner. It’s a piece of equipment that uses fuel and has moving parts. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving parts can wear out.

Having your system examined seasonally by a Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. expert can help spot little issues before they turn into huge breakdowns. (And cause your AC to stop operating!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your cooling system is located outdoors, it’s more vulnerable to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can greatly decrease your unit’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to maintain intricate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard debris that build up in your equipment can force it to work harder and decrease airflow. Both these troubles can cause increased energy use—and a higher cooling bill!
  3. It could extend your equipment’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and might even help it last longer. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly energy costs and over the years, because you won’t have to replace your equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps locate little problems before they become major, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will closely inspect parts and perform a cycle of cooling performance verifications. These detailed measures often allow us to locate issues before they lead to extensive troubles that cause an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver trouble-free comfort throughout the season. After your AC is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your equipment is set to give worry-free comfort. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the wisest approaches to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers call for seasonal maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this maintenance, your unit is vulnerable to advanced failure and limited efficiency.
