Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As warmer weather rolls around, you could be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Murrieta? Even if your cooling equipment is newer or was working just fine last season.

Here’s one method to look at it. You wouldn’t purchase a brand-new car and never have to request any maintenance for it, such as getting new oil or purchasing new tires.

The same applies for your AC. It’s a piece of equipment that needs fuel and has moving components. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving parts can break down.

Having your equipment examined yearly by a Cool Air Solutions professional can help locate little issues before they lead to large malfunctions. (And cause your unit 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 outdoors, it’s more susceptible to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can negatively impact your system’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we suggest calling a pro to take care of delicate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that build up within your equipment can push it to work harder and restrict airflow. Both these problems can lead to higher energy consumption—and a higher utility bill!
  3. It could lengthen your system’s life span. A clean air conditioner is an efficient one and could even help it run for a greater period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly cooling costs and over the long run, since you won’t have to get new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps find minor problems before they become large, expensive troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will closely inspect pieces and carry out a set of AC performance verifications. These all-inclusive processes often allow us to locate issues before they become extensive troubles that cause a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver trouble-free cooling throughout the season. After your unit is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your equipment is ready to give worry-free air. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the wisest approaches to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers call for seasonal maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this maintenance, your equipment is at risk for early breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
