Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As warmer weather rolls around, you may be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Perry? Even if your air conditioning system is newer or was cooling just fine last summer.

Here’s one approach to think about it. You wouldn’t purchase a brand-new car and never have to schedule any work for it, such as getting new oil or putting on new tires.

The same applies for your air conditioner. It’s a piece of equipment that consumes fuel and has moving components. Like a car, it can end up with leaks and its moving parts can fail.

Having your unit checked yearly by a Gillman Heating and Air professional can help find small troubles before they turn into large breakdowns. (And cause your unit to stop running!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your cooling system is installed outdoors, it’s more vulnerable to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can greatly impact your unit’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, you should call a specialist to service complicated internal components.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate inside your system can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these troubles can cause increased energy use—and a more expensive energy bill!
  3. It could extend your unit’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and might even help it run for a longer period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly energy expenses and in the long-term, because you won’t have to buy new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps determine small issues before they become big, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will carefully look at parts and carry out a series of air conditioning performance checks. These all-inclusive processes often allow us to find issues before they turn into extensive troubles that result in a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure trouble-free operation throughout the summer. After your air conditioner is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your equipment is set to give worry-free air. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the wisest approaches to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty valid. Most manufacturers require seasonal maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this service, your system is open to premature meltdowns and decreased efficiency.
