As spring rolls around, you may be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Swanton? Particularly if your air conditioning equipment is up-to-date or was running well last season.

Here’s one way to look at it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new vehicle and never anticipate to request any service for it, such as putting in fresh oil or putting on new tires.

The same affects your air conditioner. It’s equipment that consumes fuel and has moving components. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving parts can wear out.

Having your unit checked annually by a Northwest Services professional can help spot minor issues before they become large malfunctions. (And cause your AC to stop running!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your air conditioner is placed outdoors, it’s more inclined to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can greatly affect your system’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to service delicate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate inside your equipment can make it work harder and restrict airflow. Both these problems can lead to higher energy needs—and a higher energy bill!
  3. It could lengthen your system’s life span. A clean air conditioner is an efficient one and might even help it run for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly energy costs and over the years, because you won’t have to get new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps pinpoint little problems before they become big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will closely examine pieces and complete a series of AC performance tests. These detailed procedures often allow us to locate troubles before they turn into extensive troubles that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free operation throughout the season. After your AC is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your system is ready to provide worry-free air. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the wisest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this service, your unit is open to premature breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
