Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Scheduling yearly AC maintenance is useful.

Tune-ups keep your air conditioning equipment in Fort Wayne working at peak performance while keeping electricity 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 maintenance.

Here are several steps you can take by yourself as you prep for summer.

Get Your AC Checkup Scheduled

Spring is a period of renewal, and to many that involves a large dose of house, garage and yard freshening. With the hotter temperatures approaching, it’s also a great idea to include AC tune-ups on that checklist.

Spring is a great time of year to get your cooling unit scrubbed and checked out. Delaying to flip it on until the first warm day of the season can be dicey. If you have to have repair or replacement, you may be waiting days for a technician. And that may turn extremely uncomfortable.

And for allergy sufferers, being well prepared with a freshened AC system will help provide the finest indoor air quality when it’s pollen season.

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

Can I Finish a Tune-Up on My Own?

There are steps that you can take to help keep your air conditioner system in the ultimate order:

  • Put in a new 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 recommends each month or two. This is very necessary if you deal with 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 branches that have fallen into your unit, because this may impede airflow.
