Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning yearly AC maintenance is useful.

Service keeps your air conditioner unit in West Palm Beach operating at its top performance while keeping energy needs small. It also might even help extend its life expectancy.

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

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

Get Your AC Tune-Up Set

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

Spring is a great season to get your air conditioning unit cleaned and examined. Delaying to switch it on until the first sweltering day of the year can be dicey. If you have to schedule a fix or installation, you may be waiting a long time for a tech. And that may turn 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 required for your unit’s manufacturer warranty or any extra extended warranty.

Can I Do Service on My Own?

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

  • Change your air filter. Clogged filters block airflow and might decrease your equipment’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the kind you install, the U.S. Department of Energy advises each month or two. This is especially crucial if you deal with allergies or have pets in your residence.
  • Lawn work by the outside condenser. Check there’s not any grass, weeds or bushes close to your AC equipment. We suggest keeping 2–3 feet of clear room. You should also remove any leaves or sticks that have dropped into your system, since this could block airflow.

Let the Professionals Handle the Rest

  • Flushing the condensate drain line to eliminate leak-inducing mold and blockages.
  • Fixing coil fins to stop decreased airflow.
