Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As springtime rolls around, you might be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Holdrege? Even if your cooling equipment is recently installed or was cooling good last season.

Here’s one method to look at it. You wouldn’t get a brand-new car and never have to request any maintenance for it, such as putting in fresh oil or putting on new tires.

The same applies for your AC. It’s a machine that consumes fuel and has moving parts. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving pieces can malfunction.

Having your system examined annually by a Durable Service expert can help locate minor issues before they become major meltdowns. (And cause your system to stop working!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your cooling system is located outdoors, it’s more susceptible to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can majorly impact your equipment’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to take care of delicate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard debris that collect in your unit can push it to work harder and lower airflow. Both these problems can create elevated energy needs—and a more expensive utility bill!
  3. It could lengthen your system’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and could even help it run longer. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly energy bill and over the long run, since you won’t have to install new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps find small issues before they become major, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will closely examine parts and carry out a set of cooling performance checks. These in-depth processes often allow us to locate issues before they create major problems that cause a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee trouble-free cooling throughout the warmest days. After your unit is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your equipment is ready to provide worry-free cooling. Even on the warmest days. It’s one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this work, your unit is open to premature breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
