Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As warmer weather begins, you may be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Rock Hill? Even if your AC equipment is up-to-date or was working well last year.

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

The same applies for your air conditioner. It’s a machine that needs fuel and has moving parts. Like a car, it can develop leaks and its moving components can break down.

Having your equipment checked seasonally by a US Air Heating and Cooling tech can help spot minor issues before they lead to major breakdowns. (And cause your equipment to stop running!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your cooling system is located outside, it’s more susceptible to accumulating dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can negatively decrease your equipment’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to service intricate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate within your equipment can force it to work harder and decrease airflow. Both these problems can create elevated energy consumption—and a more expensive energy bill!
  3. It could prolong your equipment’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and might even help it work for a greater period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly cooling costs and over the long run, because you won’t have to get new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps spot small problems before they turn into major, costly troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will keenly inspect parts and complete a set of air conditioning performance verifications. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to locate issues before they become extensive problems that cause a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure trouble-free operation throughout the warmest days. After your system is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your equipment is set to give worry-free air. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers expect yearly maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this tune-up, your unit is vulnerable to advanced meltdowns and lowered efficiency.
