Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As warmer weather starts, you may be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Brighton? Especially if your AC equipment is newer or was cooling well last year.

Here’s one method to look at it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new vehicle and never have to schedule any maintenance for it, such as changing the oil or buying new tires.

The same is applicable to your AC. It’s a piece of equipment that needs fuel and has moving parts. Like a car, it can develop leaks and its moving components can wear out.

Having your equipment inspected annually by a D & D Heating & AC specialist can help spot little problems before they become major malfunctions. (And cause your equipment to stop running!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your air conditioner is located outside, it’s more susceptible to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can majorly affect your system’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we suggest calling a pro to service intricate internal components.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that collect inside your system can push it to work harder and decrease airflow. Both these troubles can lead to elevated energy needs—and a bigger cooling bill!
  3. It could extend your equipment’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and may even help it work longer. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly cooling bill and over the years, as you won’t have to install new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps locate small troubles before they become big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will carefully inspect pieces and perform a set of air conditioning performance tests. These detailed processes often allow us to identify troubles before they become major problems that cause a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver stress-free operation throughout the summer. After your system is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your system is prepped to give worry-free air. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the smartest approaches to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers expect regular maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this maintenance, your system is vulnerable to early meltdowns and decreased efficiency.
