Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning yearly AC maintenance is worth the effort.

Service keeps your air conditioner system in Mobile working at its best performance while keeping utility needs down. It also could even help extend its life cycle.

While there are several jobs you can complete by yourself, you should work with Experts, like the ones at Climate Control Service Experts, for AC checks and maintenance.

Here are several steps you can complete alone as you prepare for warm weather.

Get Your AC Service Set

Spring is a time of revival, and to many that includes a big dose of indoors, garage and yard freshening. With the toastier temperatures approaching, it’s also a good idea to include AC tune-ups on that checklist.

Spring is the best season to get your cooling equipment scrubbed and checked out. Delaying to switch it on until the first warm day of the season can be dicey. If you have to schedule repair or replacement, you could be waiting a long time for a tech. And that can turn very unpleasant.

And for allergy sufferers, being well prepared with a clean cooling system will help assure the best indoor air quality when it’s pollen season.

Additionally, air conditioning upkeep can be a requirement for your system’s manufacturer warranty or any extra extended warranty.

Can I Do a Tune-Up Myself?

There are procedures that you can do to help keep your air conditioner unit in the best state:

  • Replace your air filter. Clogged filters block airflow and can decrease your system’s efficiency. While replacement frequency depends on the type of filter you have, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends each month or two. This is very crucial if you deal with allergies or have a dog in your house.
  • Lawn upkeep near the outside condenser. Ensure there’s not any grass, weeds or bushes by your air conditioning unit. We suggest keeping 2–3 feet of clear space. You should also clear any leaves or sticks that have fallen into your equipment, since this could limit airflow.
