Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As warmer weather rolls around, you may be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Derby? Even if your AC system is recently installed or was operating good last summer.

Here’s one way to think about it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new car and never anticipate to schedule any service for it, such as putting in fresh oil or putting on new tires.

The same affects your air conditioner. It’s a piece of equipment that uses fuel and has moving parts. Like a automobile, it can develop leaks and its moving components can fail.

Having your unit checked seasonally by a Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning specialist can help find small troubles before they turn into large breakdowns. (And cause your system 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 vulnerable to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can negatively decrease your equipment’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we suggest calling a pro to service intricate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that collect inside your system can push it to work harder and decrease airflow. Both these issues can lead to elevated energy needs—and a higher utility bill!
  3. It could prolong your unit’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and could even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly electricity costs and in the long-term, as you won’t have to replace your equipment as soon.
  4. It helps pinpoint minor problems before they lead to big, pricey issues. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will closely examine components and complete a cycle of AC performance tests. These all-inclusive processes often allow us to find issues before they turn into big issues that lead to a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee stress-free comfort throughout the summer. After your unit is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your unit is prepped to provide worry-free air. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers call for seasonal maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this maintenance, your system is open to premature failure and lowered efficiency.
