Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Scheduling regular AC maintenance is useful.

Tune-ups keep your air conditioner unit in Fort Wayne working at peak performance while keeping utility usage low. It also can even help lengthen its life span.

While there are a few jobs you can do on your own, you should work with Experts, like the ones at Rolf Griffin Service Experts , for AC checks and service.

Here are a couple steps you can take alone as you prep for summer.

Get Your AC Checkup Scheduled

Spring is a season of renewal, and to many that involves a big dose of indoors, garage and yard sprucing. With the toastier temps near, it’s also a great idea to include AC tune-ups on that checklist.

Spring is a great time of year to get your air conditioning equipment scrubbed and checked out. Hesitating to flip it on until the first sweltering day of the season can be dicey. If you have to have repair or replacement, you might be waiting days for a tech. And that may become awfully uncomfortable.

And for allergy sufferers, being one step ahead with a fresh AC system will help provide the finest indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.

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

Can I Complete a Tune-Up Alone?

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

  • Change your air filter. Clogged filters limit airflow and could reduce your unit’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the type of filter you use, the U.S. Department of Energy advises each month or two. This is particularly crucial if you suffer from allergies or have a cat in your residence.
  • Lawn upkeep around the outside condenser. Check there’s no grass, weeds or bushes close to your AC unit. We suggest keeping 2–3 feet of open room. You should also remove any leaves or sticks that have fallen into your unit, because this may limit airflow.

Let the Pros Handle the Rest
