Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Scheduling annual AC maintenance is worthwhile.

Checkups keep your AC system in Cocoa working at its best performance while keeping utility needs low. It also may even help prolong its life expectancy.

While there are a few jobs you can do alone, you should work with Experts, like the ones at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, for AC checks and upkeep.

Here are a couple steps you can take on your own as you prepare for summer.

Get Your AC Tune-Up Scheduled

Spring is a period of revival, and to many that includes a large dose of home, garage and yard freshening. With the warmer weather right around the corner, it’s also a fantastic idea to include AC checkups on that checklist.

Spring is the best time of year to get your air conditioning system scrubbed and examined. Hesitating to turn it on until the first sweltering day of the year can be risky. If you have to schedule a fix or a new unit, you could be waiting a long time for an appointment. And that may turn extremely unpleasant.

And for people with allergies, being one step ahead with a clean air conditioning system will help ensure the best indoor air quality when it’s pollen season.

Additionally, AC upkeep may be a requirement for your system’s manufacturer warranty or any extra extended warranty.

Can I Do Service on My Own?

There are steps that you can take to help keep your AC system in the prime state:

  • Change your air filter. Filthy filters restrict airflow and can lower your system’s efficiency. While the replacement timeline depends on the type of filter you have, the U.S. Department of Energy advises each month or two. This is especially necessary if you suffer from allergies or have pets in your residence.
  • Lawn work around the outside condenser. Ensure the area is free of grass, weeds or bushes near your AC equipment. We suggest keeping 2–3 feet of open space. You should also clear any leaves or branches that have fallen into your unit, as this could limit airflow.
