Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning routine AC maintenance is worthwhile.

Maintenance keeps your air conditioner unit in West Chester operating at its top performance while keeping utility usage down. It also could even help lengthen its life expectancy.

While there are several jobs you can finish by yourself, you should work with Experts, like the ones at Wesley Wood Service Experts, for AC inspections and maintenance.

Here are several steps you can do alone as you prepare for cooling season.

Get Your AC Tune-Up Scheduled

Spring is a period of revival, and to many that includes a large portion of home, garage and yard freshening. With the hotter weather right around the corner, it’s also a fantastic idea to put AC maintenance on that checklist.

Spring is the best time of year to get your air conditioning system freshened and inspected. Waiting to switch it on until the first sweltering day of the year can be dicey. If you have to schedule service or a new unit, you might be waiting days for a technician. And that might turn awfully uncomfortable.

And for those with allergies, being well prepared with a freshened AC system will help assure the finest indoor air quality during pollen season.

Additionally, AC service might be required for your equipment’s manufacturer warranty or any extra extended warranty.

Can I Complete a Tune-Up on My Own?

There are methods that you can take to help keep your air conditioner unit in the ultimate state:

  • Change your air filter. Clogged filters restrict airflow and might lower your unit’s efficiency. While the replacement timeline depends on the type of filter you use, the U.S. Department of Energy advises each month or two. This is especially crucial if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have a cat in your home.
  • Lawn work around the exterior condenser. Make sure there’s not any grass, weeds or bushes near your AC equipment. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of open room. You should also remove any leaves or sticks that have collected inside your system, as this could impede airflow.
