Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Booking regular AC maintenance is useful.

Service keeps your air conditioning system in Dayton running at peak performance while keeping energy consumption down. It also might even help prolong its life span.

While there are a few jobs you can finish by yourself, you should work with Experts, like the ones at Stevenson Service Experts, for AC checks and upkeep.

Here are several steps you can take by yourself as you get ready for cooling season.

Get Your AC Maintenance Set

Spring is a time of rejuvenation, and to many that involves a hefty portion of home, garage and yard freshening. With the hotter weather approaching, it’s also a great idea to add AC tune-ups on that checklist.

Spring is a great time of year to get your cooling equipment freshened and examined. Delaying to switch it on until the first warm day of the summer can be dicey. If you have to schedule service or a new unit, you could be waiting days for a tech. And that might turn extremely unbearable.

And for allergy sufferers, being ahead of the game with a clean AC system will help assure the finest indoor air quality during pollen season.

Additionally, AC upkeep may be a requirement for your system’s manufacturer warranty or any additional extended warranty.

Can I Complete a Tune-Up Alone?

There are procedures that you can complete to help keep your air conditioner equipment in the prime order:

  • Replace your air filter. Filthy filters limit airflow and may reduce your unit’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the type of filter you install, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends each month or two. This is particularly crucial if you suffer from allergies or have animals in your house.
  • Lawn work by the exterior condenser. Ensure there’s not any grass, weeds or bushes close to your air conditioning equipment. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of open space. You should also clear any leaves or twigs that have fallen into your unit, since this might impede airflow.

Let the Professionals Take Care of the Rest

  • Aligning coil fins to stop limited airflow.

  • Evaluating the operating temperature parameters to ensure your equipment has the proper refrigeration charge.
