As warmer weather begins, you could be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Sandpoint? Particularly if your AC system is up-to-date or was running good last year.

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

The same is applicable to your AC. It’s equipment that consumes fuel and has moving components. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving pieces can break down.

Having your system checked seasonally by a Age Heating & Cooling professional can help spot small issues before they turn into large malfunctions. (And cause your unit to stop running!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your cooling system is placed outdoors, it’s more susceptible to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can greatly affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to service intricate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate within your unit can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these troubles can cause higher energy use—and a bigger cooling bill!
  3. It could extend your equipment’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and could even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, because you won’t have to buy new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps pinpoint little issues before they lead to big, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will closely examine components and complete a series of air conditioning performance verifications. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to identify issues before they turn into big issues that result in a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free cooling throughout the warmest days. After your equipment is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your unit is ready to deliver worry-free air. Even on the warmest 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 in place. Without this work, your system is open to early breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
