Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As springtime starts, 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 method to contemplate it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new vehicle and never have to request any service for it, such as getting new 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 break down.

Having your unit examined seasonally by a Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces pro can help locate small troubles before they become huge malfunctions. (And cause your unit to stop operating!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your cooling system is located outside, it’s more prone to accumulating dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can majorly impact your unit’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we suggest calling an expert to service complicated internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard debris that build up in your equipment can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these problems can create higher energy use—and a higher utility bill!
  3. It could extend your equipment’s life span. A clean air conditioner is an efficient one and could even help it work for a longer 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 little troubles before they lead to major, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will closely inspect components and carry out a series of cooling performance checks. These detailed processes often allow us to identify troubles before they turn into extensive troubles that result in a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver trouble-free operation throughout the season. After your air conditioner is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your unit is ready to give worry-free comfort. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the wisest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers expect seasonal maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this tune-up, your system is vulnerable to early breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
