Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning annual AC maintenance is worth the effort.

Tune-ups keep your air conditioning system in Albany running at peak performance while keeping electricity usage small. It also can even help lengthen its life span.

While there are several jobs you can do by yourself, you should work with Experts, like the ones at Roland J. Down Service Experts , for AC inspections and service.

Here are several steps you can take by yourself as you get ready for summer.

Get Your AC Maintenance Booked

Spring is a season of renewal, and to many that entails a big portion of home, garage and yard sprucing. With the toastier temps right around the corner, it’s also a great idea to include AC tune-ups on that checklist.

Spring is a great season to get your cooling system scrubbed and inspected. Delaying to flip it on until the first warm day of the year can be risky. If you have to have repair or a new unit, you could be waiting awhile for a technician. And that may become awfully uncomfortable.

And for those with allergies, being well prepared with a clean air conditioning system will help assure the greatest indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.

Additionally, air conditioner maintenance might be a requirement for your unit’s manufacturer warranty or any applicable extended warranty.

Can I Finish Service Alone?

There are procedures that you can complete to help keep your AC unit in the top order:

  • Change your air filter. Filthy filters limit airflow and may decrease your equipment’s efficiency. While the replacement timeline depends on the type of filter you have, the U.S. Department of Energy suggests each month or two. This is very crucial if you suffer from allergies or have animals in your house.
  • Lawn maintenance by the exterior condenser. Ensure the area is free of grass, weeds or bushes by your air conditioning equipment. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of open area. You should also clear any leaves or twigs that have fallen into your equipment, as this may block airflow.

Let the Experts Manage the Rest
