Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As springtime begins, you might be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Heflin? Even if your AC unit is up-to-date or was cooling good last summer.

Here’s one way to think about it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new automobile and never expect to request any service for it, such as putting in fresh oil or purchasing new tires.

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

Having your unit examined yearly by a Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc technician can help locate minor problems before they turn into large breakdowns. (And cause your system to stop working!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your air conditioner is installed outside your home, it’s more inclined to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can majorly affect your system’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling an expert to service complicated internal components.
  2. It keeps your AC efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that build up within your unit can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these troubles can lead to elevated energy use—and a higher energy bill!
  3. It could lengthen your unit’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and may even help it last longer. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly electricity bill and over the years, since you won’t have to buy new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps find little troubles before they turn into large, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will carefully examine components and complete a cycle of cooling performance tests. These detailed processes often allow us to identify issues before they create big problems that lead to a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee worry-free cooling throughout the season. After your system is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your system is ready to provide worry-free air. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers require yearly maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this tune-up, your unit is at risk for advanced meltdowns and limited efficiency.
