As springtime rolls around, you might be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Florissant and St. Charles? Particularly if your cooling unit is recently purchased or was running well last season.

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

The same is applicable to your AC. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving pieces. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving pieces can wear out.

Having your equipment checked seasonally by a B & B Heating & Cooling tech can help spot small issues before they turn into large malfunctions. (And cause your system to stop running!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your AC is placed outdoors, it’s more vulnerable to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can negatively affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a specialist to service intricate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate in your unit can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these issues can create higher energy use—and a higher cooling bill!
  3. It could prolong your system’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and could even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly energy costs and over the years, since you won’t have to replace your equipment as soon.
  4. It helps identify little troubles before they turn into big, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will keenly examine pieces and complete a cycle of cooling performance verifications. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to locate problems before they turn into major troubles that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free operation throughout the summer. After your AC is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your unit is ready to deliver worry-free air. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the smartest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this tune-up, your system is open to premature breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
