As spring starts, you could be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Covington? Even if your air conditioning unit is up-to-date or was running just fine last year.

Here’s one approach to look at it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new automobile and never expect to request any work for it, such as putting in fresh oil or getting new tires.

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

Having your system checked annually by a Covington Air Systems expert can help spot little issues before they turn into large meltdowns. (And cause your unit to stop working!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your AC is placed outdoors, it’s more prone to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can greatly affect your system’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a specialist to service intricate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate in your system can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these troubles can lead to higher energy needs—and a higher utility bill!
  3. It could prolong your equipment’s life span. A clean air conditioner is an efficient one and might even help it run for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly energy costs and over the years, as you won’t have to install new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps locate little issues before they lead to big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will carefully examine parts and complete a set of AC performance checks. These detailed procedures often allow us to identify issues before they turn into major issues that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee worry-free cooling throughout the summer. After your unit is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your system is ready to provide worry-free cooling. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the best methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this service, your unit is open to early breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
