Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

May 08, 2020

As springtime starts, you may be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Wyandotte? Particularly if your cooling unit is newer or was running just fine last year.

Here’s one approach to look at it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new automobile and never expect to book any service for it, such as getting new oil or buying new tires.

The same applies for your air conditioner. It’s a machine that consumes fuel and has moving pieces. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving pieces can wear out.

Having your equipment checked yearly by a Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning tech can help find small issues before they become major meltdowns. (And cause your equipment to stop working!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your AC is located outdoors, it’s more inclined to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can majorly lower your equipment’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to service complicated internal parts.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate inside your unit can push it to work harder and restrict airflow. Both these troubles can cause increased energy use—and a more expensive utility bill!
  3. It could prolong your system’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and might even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly electricity bill and over the long run, as you won’t have to replace your equipment as soon.
  4. It helps determine little problems before they lead to major, expensive troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will carefully examine components and complete a set of air conditioning performance verifications. These all-inclusive measures often allow us to locate troubles before they create extensive troubles that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee worry-free comfort throughout the season. After your system is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your unit is set to give worry-free air. Even on the warmest days. It’s one of the best methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty valid. Most manufacturers expect yearly maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this service, your equipment is vulnerable to advanced meltdowns and limited efficiency.
