Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As springtime starts, you may be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Jefferson City? Especially if your AC unit is newer or was running well last season.

Here’s one method to think about it. You wouldn’t purchase a brand-new vehicle and never have to schedule any service for it, such as changing the oil or buying new tires.

The same applies for your AC. It’s equipment that uses fuel and has moving components. Like a car, it can end up with leaks and its moving pieces can fail.

Having your unit inspected annually by a Stieferman Heating Company Inc professional can help spot small troubles before they turn into huge meltdowns. (And cause your AC to stop running!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your AC is located outside your home, it’s more inclined to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can greatly affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, you should call a pro to service intricate internal components.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that collect in your unit can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these issues can cause higher energy consumption—and a bigger utility bill!
  3. It could lengthen your equipment’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and could even help it work longer. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly cooling expenses and over the long run, as you won’t have to get new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps locate little troubles before they lead to major, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will closely examine pieces and carry out a set of AC performance verifications. These in-depth procedures often allow us to find troubles before they create big troubles that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee trouble-free cooling throughout the summer. After your equipment is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your system is set to provide worry-free comfort. Even on the warmest days. It’s one of the wisest approaches to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers expect annual maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this service, your equipment is vulnerable to premature breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
