Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

May 08, 2020

As warmer weather starts, you may be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Tucson? Even if your AC unit is recently installed or was running just fine last season.

Here’s one approach to look at it. You wouldn’t get a brand-new car and never expect to book any maintenance for it, such as getting new oil or getting new tires.

The same affects your air conditioner. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving pieces. Like a car, it can get leaks and its moving components can malfunction.

Having your unit inspected seasonally by a A&M Heating & Cooling LLC technician can help find minor issues before they turn into major breakdowns. (And cause your equipment to stop working!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your air conditioner is installed outside, it’s more prone to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can negatively affect your system’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 equipment efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate in your unit can push it to work harder and decrease airflow. Both these troubles can lead to higher energy consumption—and a bigger utility bill!
  3. It could extend your unit’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and might even help it last for a greater period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly electricity bill and in the long-term, since you won’t have to install new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps pinpoint minor issues before they become big, pricey issues. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will keenly examine components and carry out a series of cooling performance verifications. These detailed measures often allow us to locate issues before they create large problems that cause a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee trouble-free comfort throughout the season. After your AC is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your system is prepped to deliver worry-free air. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers call for seasonal maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this tune-up, your system is vulnerable to advanced meltdowns and lowered efficiency.
