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 AC equipment is recently purchased or was working well 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 applies for your AC. It’s a piece of equipment that uses fuel and has moving parts. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving pieces can break down.

Having your system examined seasonally by a McFadden Heating & Cooling pro can help spot minor troubles before they turn into major meltdowns. (And cause your AC to stop operating!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your air conditioner is installed outside your home, it’s more susceptible to accumulating dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can majorly decrease your equipment’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling an expert to maintain complicated internal parts.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard debris that build up within your unit can force it to work harder and lower airflow. Both these issues can lead to elevated energy use—and a more expensive energy bill!
  3. It could lengthen your equipment’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and might even help it run longer. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly cooling bill and over the years, as you won’t have to buy new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps find little problems before they lead to large, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will keenly look at pieces and perform a set of cooling performance checks. These in-depth measures often allow us to find problems before they lead to extensive issues that lead to a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver trouble-free cooling throughout the warmest days. After your system is maintained, 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 wisest ways to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers call for yearly maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this work, your equipment is open to early breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
