Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning regular AC maintenance is useful.

Tune-ups keep your air conditioning system in Columbus running at its best performance while keeping electricity needs low. It also might even help extend its life span.

While there are a few tasks you can complete alone, you should call the Experts, like the ones at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, for AC examinations and service.

Here are several steps you can complete on your own as you prepare for cooling season.

Get Your AC Service Booked

Spring is a season of rejuvenation, and to many that entails a big amount of home, garage and yard cleaning. With the toastier temps approaching, it’s also a great idea to include AC checkups on that checklist.

Spring is the perfect season to get your air conditioning unit cleaned and checked out. Waiting to turn it on until the first sweltering day of the season can be dicey. If you have to schedule repair or installation, you might be waiting days for a technician. And that could turn very unbearable.

And for those with allergies, being well prepared with a fresh cooling system will help provide the greatest indoor air quality when it’s pollen season.

Also, air conditioner upkeep might be a requirement for your system’s manufacturer warranty or any additional extended warranty.

Can I Do a Tune-Up on My Own?

There are steps that you can complete to help keep your air conditioning unit in the top state:

  • Put in a new air filter. Filthy filters limit airflow and could lower your unit’s efficiency. While replacement frequency depends on the kind you install, the U.S. Department of Energy advises each month or two. This is especially necessary if you suffer from allergies or have a dog in your house.
  • Lawn upkeep near the outdoor condenser. Ensure there’s no grass, weeds or bushes near your air conditioning unit. We recommend keeping 2–3 feet of clear space. You should also get rid of any leaves or sticks that have dropped into your equipment, as this can limit airflow.
