As warmer weather begins, you may be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Crown Point? Even if your cooling unit is newer or was running well last year.

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

The same is applicable to your air conditioning. It’s equipment that consumes fuel and has moving components. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving components can malfunction.

Having your unit checked yearly by a Struven Heating & Cooling technician can help spot little issues before they turn into large malfunctions. (And cause your air conditioning to stop working!)

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 vulnerable to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can majorly affect your unit’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 AC efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate inside your equipment can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these issues can lead to higher energy consumption—and a bigger energy bill!
  3. It could lengthen your equipment’s life span. A clean air conditioner is an efficient one and could even help it run for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, as you won’t have to buy new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps pinpoint little troubles before they turn into big, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will carefully examine components and complete a cycle of air conditioning performance checks. These detailed procedures often allow us to identify troubles before they turn into extensive troubles that result in a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free cooling throughout the summer. After your unit is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your unit is ready to give worry-free cooling. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the best methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty valid. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this maintenance, your unit is open to early breakdowns and limited efficiency.
