Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Scheduling annual AC maintenance is worthwhile.

Tune-ups keep your air conditioning equipment in Jacksonville operating at peak performance while keeping energy usage small. It also may even help lengthen its life span.

While there are several jobs you can do on your own, you should call the Experts, like the ones at Air Engineers Service Experts, for AC examinations and upkeep.

Here are several steps you can take alone as you prepare for summer.

Get Your AC Maintenance Set

Spring is a period of renewal, and to many that includes a large amount of home, garage and yard cleaning. With the toastier temps right around the corner, it’s also a great idea to include AC checkups on that checklist.

Spring is the best season to get your AC equipment scrubbed and examined. Hesitating to switch it on until the first sweltering day of the year can be dicey. If you have to schedule repair or installation, you might be waiting a long time for a technician. And that might get very unpleasant.

And for those with allergies, being one step ahead with a freshened AC system will help provide the greatest indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.

Plus, AC upkeep can be a requirement for your equipment’s manufacturer warranty or any other extended warranty.

Can I Do Service Alone?

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

  • Replace your air filter. Dirty filters restrict airflow and might lower your equipment’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the kind you install, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends each month or two. This is very crucial if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have pets in your home.
  • Lawn upkeep around the outdoor condenser. Check the area is free of grass, weeds or bushes by your cooling system. We recommend keeping 2–3 feet of clear room. You should also get rid of any leaves or sticks that have dropped into your unit, because this might block airflow.
