Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As warmer weather rolls around, you may be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Murrieta? Particularly if your cooling unit is newer or was working just fine last season.

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

The same is applicable to your air conditioning. It’s a piece of equipment that needs fuel and has moving components. Like a vehicle, it can end up with leaks and its moving parts can break down.

Having your unit checked seasonally by a Cool Air Solutions professional can help spot minor issues before they turn into huge meltdowns. (And cause your equipment to stop operating!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your air conditioner is placed outside your home, it’s more susceptible to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can negatively lower your system’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a specialist to take care of delicate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that build up in your unit can push it to work harder and restrict airflow. Both these troubles can lead to elevated energy consumption—and a higher cooling bill!
  3. It could lengthen your system’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and might even help it run for a greater period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly electricity expenses and over the years, since you won’t have to get new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps find little problems before they become large, expensive troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will closely inspect pieces and complete a set of AC performance tests. These detailed processes often allow us to locate issues before they lead to extensive troubles that cause a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver trouble-free cooling throughout the season. After your unit is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your unit is ready to give worry-free air. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the smartest approaches to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers expect seasonal maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this maintenance, your equipment is at risk for early breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
