Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning yearly AC maintenance is worthwhile.

Service keeps your AC unit in Jackson running at peak performance while keeping electricity consumption small. It also might even help extend its life cycle.

While there are several jobs you can do by yourself, you should hire Experts, like the ones at Comfortech Service Experts , for AC inspections and service.

Here are a couple steps you can take by yourself as you get ready for cooling season.

Get Your AC Checkup Set

Spring is a period of rejuvenation, and to many that entails a big portion of indoors, garage and yard freshening. With the hotter temps near, it’s also a great idea to include AC checkups on that listing.

Spring is the perfect time of year to get your air conditioning equipment freshened and inspected. Delaying to turn it on until the first warm day of the season can be a gamble. If you have to have service or a new unit, you could be waiting days for a technician. And that may become very unpleasant.

And for those with allergies, being ahead of the game with a clean air conditioning system will help assure the finest indoor air quality when it’s pollen season.

Additionally, air conditioner service might be required for your unit’s manufacturer warranty or any extra extended warranty.

Can I Finish Service Alone?

There are methods that you can take to help keep your AC equipment in the best condition:

  • Change your air filter. Dirty filters block airflow and may lower your equipment’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the kind you install, the U.S. Department of Energy suggests each month or two. This is particularly crucial if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have a cat in your house.
  • Lawn upkeep near the exterior condenser. Make sure there’s not any grass, weeds or bushes close to your air conditioning unit. We suggest keeping 2–3 feet of clear room. You should also clear any leaves or twigs that have fallen into your unit, as this may block airflow.
