Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

May 08, 2020

As warmer weather starts, you may be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Hasbrouck Heights? Particularly if your air conditioning system is recently installed or was running well last season.

Here’s one way to contemplate it. You wouldn’t purchase a brand-new automobile and never expect to request any service for it, such as getting new oil or getting new tires.

The same is applicable to your air conditioner. It’s a machine that uses fuel and has moving pieces. Like a car, it can develop leaks and its moving components can malfunction.

Having your system inspected annually by a ACE Solutions specialist can help find little issues before they become huge meltdowns. (And cause your AC to stop working!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your air conditioner is placed outdoors, it’s more inclined to accumulating dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can negatively decrease your unit’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to maintain complicated internal parts.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate within your unit can push it to work harder and lower airflow. Both these problems can cause increased energy consumption—and a bigger energy bill!
  3. It could lengthen your equipment’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and could even help it last longer. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly energy expenses and over the years, as you won’t have to install new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps locate small problems before they become major, expensive issues. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will carefully look at components and perform a cycle of cooling performance checks. These detailed measures often allow us to locate troubles before they lead to major issues that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver stress-free operation throughout the season. After your equipment is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your unit is well-prepared to provide worry-free comfort. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the wisest approaches to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers expect annual maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this maintenance, your system is vulnerable to premature breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
