As warmer weather starts, you might be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Heflin? Especially if your AC system is up-to-date or was running just fine last season.

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

The same applies for your air conditioning. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving pieces. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving parts can wear out.

Having your system checked annually by a Bain Heating & Air Conditioning pro can help spot little issues before they lead to large breakdowns. (And cause your air conditioning to stop running!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your cooling system is located outdoors, it’s more inclined to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can greatly affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to service intricate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate within your unit can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these issues can cause higher energy needs—and a more expensive utility bill!
  3. It could extend your system’s life span. A clean unit 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 electricity costs and over the years, because you won’t have to install new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps locate little issues before they turn into big, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will carefully examine pieces and complete a cycle of AC performance tests. These in-depth procedures often allow us to find troubles before they turn into extensive issues that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free comfort throughout the summer. After your unit is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your equipment is ready to deliver worry-free comfort. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the wisest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty valid. Most manufacturers expect regular maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this service, your equipment is open to early breakdowns and limited efficiency.
