Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

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

Here’s one method 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 purchasing new tires.

The same affects your air conditioner. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving parts. Like a vehicle, 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 locate little troubles before they lead to 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 prone to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can greatly decrease your equipment’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a specialist to service intricate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that build up within your equipment can force it to work harder and lower airflow. Both these troubles can cause increased energy use—and a higher utility bill!
  3. It could extend your unit’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and could even help it last longer. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly energy costs and over the years, because you won’t have to buy new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps locate little problems before they become major, costly troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will closely inspect pieces and perform a cycle of cooling performance verifications. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to locate issues before they become extensive troubles that cause an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee trouble-free comfort throughout the warmest days. After your system is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your unit is well-prepared to give worry-free comfort. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the wisest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers call for seasonal maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this service, your system is open to advanced failure and limited efficiency.
