Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As spring starts, you may be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Northglenn? Particularly if your air conditioning equipment is recently purchased or was working just fine last season.

Here’s one way to contemplate it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new car and never anticipate to request any maintenance for it, such as putting in fresh oil or putting on new tires.

The same is applicable to your air conditioning. It’s equipment that uses fuel and has moving pieces. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving components can fail.

Having your system inspected annually by a Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. tech can help locate minor troubles before they become major breakdowns. (And cause your AC to stop working!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your air conditioner is located outside, it’s more vulnerable to accumulating dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can majorly decrease your unit’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to take care of complicated internal parts.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that collect within your equipment can push it to work harder and lower airflow. Both these issues can create elevated energy use—and a bigger energy bill!
  3. It could lengthen your system’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and could even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly energy costs and over the years, since you won’t have to get new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps pinpoint little issues before they become big, pricey troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will closely examine pieces and carry out a set of cooling performance tests. These all-inclusive processes often allow us to find issues before they turn into large problems that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver trouble-free operation throughout the summer. After your air conditioner is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your system is well-prepared to deliver worry-free air. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the wisest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers expect regular maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this maintenance, your equipment is at risk for premature breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
