Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Scheduling regular AC maintenance is worth the effort.

Service keeps your AC system in Buffalo running at its best performance while keeping electricity needs down. It also can even help prolong its life cycle.

While there are a few jobs you can complete alone, you should call the Experts, like the ones at Sunbeam Service Experts, for AC inspections and service.

Here are a few steps you can complete on your own as you prepare for warm weather.

Get Your AC Service Set

Spring is a season of rejuvenation, and to many that involves a large dose of home, garage and yard freshening. With the hotter temps right around the corner, it’s also a good idea to add AC checkups on that listing.

Spring is the perfect time of year to get your AC equipment cleaned and inspected. Delaying to switch it on until the first sweltering day of the summer can be a gamble. If you have to have repair or a new unit, you may be waiting awhile for an appointment. And that can turn very unpleasant.

And for those with allergies, being ahead of the game with a clean cooling system will help ensure the greatest indoor air quality when it’s pollen season.

Also, cooling service may be required for your system’s manufacturer warranty or any other extended warranty.

Can I Do a Tune-Up on My Own?

There are steps that you can take to help keep your cooling equipment in the best order:

  • Put in a new air filter. Filthy filters block airflow and might decrease your unit’s efficiency. While replacement frequency depends on the kind you use, the U.S. Department of Energy advises each month or two. This is very important if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have animals in your house.
  • Lawn work around the exterior condenser. Check there’s no grass, weeds or bushes near your AC equipment. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of free room. You should also clear any leaves or sticks that have fallen into your system, since this can block airflow.

  • Fixing coil fins to avoid decreased airflow.
