Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As spring begins, you might be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Alliance? Especially if your cooling system is recently purchased or was operating good last year.

Here’s one approach to look at it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new automobile and never have to book any work for it, such as putting in fresh oil or buying new tires.

The same affects your air conditioning. It’s a machine that needs fuel and has moving parts. Like a car, it can get leaks and its moving components can malfunction.

Having your equipment checked seasonally by a Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces pro can help spot small issues before they become huge malfunctions. (And cause your unit to stop running!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your air conditioner is located outside, it’s more prone to accumulating dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can majorly impact your unit’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling an expert to service intricate internal components.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that build up in your equipment can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these troubles can lead to higher energy use—and a higher utility bill!
  3. It could extend your equipment’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and might even help it work for a greater period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly cooling costs and in the long-term, since you won’t have to install new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps identify minor issues before they lead to major, pricey troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will closely inspect components and complete a series of cooling performance checks. These all-inclusive processes often allow us to identify problems before they turn into extensive troubles that cause a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver trouble-free operation throughout the warmest days. After your air conditioner is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your unit is ready to deliver worry-free comfort. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the smartest 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 tune-up, your system is open to early breakdowns and limited efficiency.
