Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning regular AC maintenance is useful.

Service keeps your air conditioning equipment in West Palm Beach running at its best performance while keeping energy needs down. It also might even help extend its life expectancy.

While there are several things you can finish on your own, you should work with Experts, like the ones at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, for AC examinations and maintenance.

Here are a few steps you can do on your own as you prep for warm weather.

Get Your AC Maintenance Booked

Spring is a period of renewal, and to many that involves a big dose of indoors, garage and yard freshening. With the hotter temps right around the corner, it’s also a great idea to add AC tune-ups on that checklist.

Spring is the best season to get your air conditioning equipment cleaned and examined. Delaying to switch it on until the first sweltering day of the year can be dicey. If you have to have service or a new unit, you may be waiting a long time for a technician. And that could become very unpleasant.

And for allergy sufferers, being well prepared with a fresh AC system will help assure the best indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.

Plus, AC upkeep may be mandatory for your unit’s manufacturer warranty or any extra extended warranty.

Can I Do Maintenance Alone?

There are steps that you can do to help keep your cooling system in the best order:

  • Change your air filter. Filthy filters block airflow and might decrease your unit’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the model you install, the U.S. Department of Energy advises each month or two. This is especially crucial if you suffer from allergies or have a dog in your house.
  • Lawn work near the outside condenser. Check the area is free of grass, weeds or bushes close to your AC equipment. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of clear room. You should also remove any leaves or branches that have collected inside your system, since this could block airflow.
