Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

May 08, 2020

As warmer weather rolls around, you might be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Neptune City? Even if your cooling system is newer or was cooling good last season.

Here’s one way to think about it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new automobile and never expect to request any work 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 parts. Like a vehicle, it can end up with leaks and its moving parts can fail.

Having your system examined annually by a Aggressive Mechanical pro can help spot minor problems before they lead to huge meltdowns. (And cause your equipment to stop working!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your AC is placed outside your home, it’s more vulnerable to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can greatly decrease your unit’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we suggest calling an expert to maintain delicate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate inside your equipment can make it work harder and restrict airflow. Both these issues can cause elevated energy needs—and a bigger energy bill!
  3. It could extend your unit’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and could even help it work for a greater period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly cooling expenses and over the long run, as you won’t have to get new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps determine minor troubles before they become major, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will closely look at parts and complete a cycle of air conditioning performance tests. These in-depth measures often allow us to find issues before they turn into major troubles that cause a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver trouble-free comfort throughout the summer. After your AC is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your system is prepped to provide worry-free air. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the wisest ways to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers call for yearly maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this work, your unit is at risk for advanced meltdowns and decreased efficiency.
