Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As spring starts, you could be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Wyandotte? Even if your cooling system is recently installed or was cooling just fine last summer.

Here’s one approach to think about it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new automobile and never have to book any work for it, such as changing the oil or purchasing new tires.

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

Having your unit examined seasonally by a Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning technician can help find little problems before they become large meltdowns. (And cause your AC to stop operating!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your air conditioner is installed outside your home, it’s more susceptible to accumulating dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can majorly affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to service intricate internal components.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that collect within your equipment can force it to work harder and decrease airflow. Both these issues can cause increased energy needs—and a higher energy bill!
  3. It could prolong your equipment’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and could even help it work for a greater period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, since you won’t have to install new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps identify small problems before they lead to major, costly issues. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will keenly look at components and complete a cycle of AC performance verifications. These detailed processes often allow us to locate issues before they lead to extensive problems that lead to a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver trouble-free cooling throughout the warmest days. After your equipment is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your unit is prepped to give worry-free comfort. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the wisest approaches to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers expect seasonal maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this work, your equipment is at risk for premature failure and decreased efficiency.
