Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As spring rolls around, you could be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Safford? Particularly if your cooling unit is up-to-date or was running good last season.

Here’s one method to think about it. You wouldn’t get a brand-new car and never anticipate to book any maintenance for it, such as putting in fresh oil or getting new tires.

The same affects your AC. It’s a machine that needs fuel and has moving pieces. Like a car, it can get leaks and its moving components can fail.

Having your unit inspected annually by a B&D Air Conditioning technician can help spot small problems before they turn into large breakdowns. (And cause your air conditioning to stop operating!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your cooling system is installed outside, it’s more inclined to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can negatively decrease your system’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a specialist to maintain intricate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that collect within your unit can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these problems can cause increased energy needs—and a more expensive energy bill!
  3. It could lengthen your equipment’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and could even help it run longer. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly electricity bill and over the years, as you won’t have to install new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps determine small issues before they become large, expensive issues. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will closely look at components and complete a series of AC performance verifications. These all-inclusive processes often allow us to identify troubles before they turn into big problems that lead to a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free operation throughout the warmest days. After your system is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your system is well-prepared to deliver worry-free comfort. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the best methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers call for annual maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this tune-up, your system is vulnerable to premature failure and decreased efficiency.
