Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As warmer weather rolls around, you might be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Dresden? Especially if your air conditioning equipment is recently purchased or was operating good last year.

Here’s one way to contemplate it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new car and never expect to schedule any service for it, such as changing the oil or getting new tires.

The same is applicable to your AC. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving parts. Like a vehicle, it can end up with leaks and its moving pieces can malfunction.

Having your system checked seasonally by a McFadden Heating & Cooling pro can help locate little troubles before they lead to major malfunctions. (And cause your AC to stop running!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your cooling system is placed outdoors, it’s more susceptible to accumulating dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can negatively decrease your equipment’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we suggest calling an expert to service intricate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard debris that build up in your unit can force it to work harder and decrease airflow. Both these issues can lead to higher energy needs—and a more expensive energy bill!
  3. It could lengthen your unit’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and might even help it run longer. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly electricity bill and over the long run, because you won’t have to buy new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps spot minor problems before they lead to large, expensive troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will keenly look at pieces and perform a cycle of cooling performance checks. These in-depth measures often allow us to find problems before they become extensive issues that lead to a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver trouble-free comfort throughout the warmest days. After your system is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your system is prepped to provide worry-free comfort. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the smartest ways to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers call for annual maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this work, your equipment is vulnerable to advanced meltdowns and lowered efficiency.
