Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As springtime starts, you may be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Northglenn? Particularly if your AC equipment is recently purchased or was operating just fine last summer.

Here’s one way to contemplate it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new car and never have to request any maintenance for it, such as getting new oil or purchasing new tires.

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

Having your system inspected annually by a Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. expert can help spot minor troubles before they become major breakdowns. (And cause your system 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 refuse, 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 debris that collect in your equipment can push it to work harder and decrease airflow. Both these issues can create higher energy use—and a more expensive energy bill!
  3. It could lengthen your system’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and might even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly energy expenses and over the long run, since you won’t have to get new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps pinpoint minor issues before they become big, costly troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will closely look at pieces and complete a cycle of cooling performance tests. These all-inclusive processes often allow us to find issues before they turn into large problems that cause an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee trouble-free operation throughout the summer. After your air conditioner is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your system is well-prepared to give worry-free comfort. 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 call for regular maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this service, your equipment is at risk for premature breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
