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

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

The same applies for your AC. It’s equipment that uses fuel and has moving components. Like a car, it can get leaks and its moving pieces can malfunction.

Having your unit checked seasonally by a B & B Heating & Cooling specialist can help spot little issues before they become large breakdowns. (And cause your system to stop operating!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your AC is installed outdoors, it’s more prone to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can greatly affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a specialist to service delicate internal components.
  2. It keeps your AC efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate inside your system can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these issues can lead to higher energy consumption—and a more expensive utility bill!
  3. It could lengthen your system’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 save on your monthly energy costs and over the years, as you won’t have to get new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps find little problems before they lead to big, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will keenly examine parts and complete a cycle of cooling performance tests. These detailed procedures often allow us to find problems before they turn into big problems that result in a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee worry-free comfort throughout the summer. After your unit is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your equipment is ready to deliver worry-free cooling. Even on the warmest days. It’s one of the best methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers expect regular maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this tune-up, your equipment is open to advanced breakdowns and limited efficiency.
