Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As springtime rolls around, you might be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Savage? Even if your air conditioning equipment is up-to-date or was operating just fine last year.

Here’s one method to contemplate it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new automobile and never expect to book any service for it, such as changing the oil or putting on new tires.

The same is applicable to your air conditioner. It’s a piece of equipment that consumes fuel and has moving pieces. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving components can wear out.

Having your system checked yearly by a Gopher Heating and Air Conditioning pro can help locate little issues before they become major meltdowns. (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 AC is placed outside, it’s more prone to accumulating dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can majorly lower your unit’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, you should call a professional to service delicate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate within your unit can push it to work harder and lower airflow. Both these issues can lead to increased energy consumption—and a bigger cooling bill!
  3. It could prolong your system’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and may even help it run longer. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly electricity bill and over the years, as you won’t have to get new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps determine little issues before they lead to large, expensive issues. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will closely look at pieces and perform a cycle of cooling performance verifications. These all-inclusive processes often allow us to identify issues before they become big issues that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free comfort throughout the warmest days. After your system is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your system is set to provide worry-free air. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the best approaches to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers require yearly maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this tune-up, your unit is vulnerable to premature meltdowns and limited efficiency.
