As springtime starts, you may be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Sandpoint? Particularly if your cooling unit is newer or was running well last season.

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

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

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

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your AC is placed outdoors, it’s more prone to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can greatly affect your system’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling an expert to service complicated internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate within your equipment can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these problems can create higher energy needs—and a more expensive cooling bill!
  3. It could extend your equipment’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and may even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, as you won’t have to buy new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps identify little issues before they lead to big, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will closely examine pieces and complete a series of cooling performance tests. These in-depth procedures often allow us to find troubles before they turn into extensive issues that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free cooling throughout the season. After your system is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your equipment is ready to provide 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 expect regular maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this service, your equipment is open to premature breakdowns and limited efficiency.
