Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As warmer weather begins, you could be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Ronkonkoma? Especially if your AC unit is up-to-date or was working good last year.

Here’s one way to think about it. You wouldn’t purchase a brand-new automobile and never expect to schedule any maintenance for it, such as changing the oil or purchasing new tires.

The same is applicable to your air conditioning. It’s equipment that uses fuel and has moving components. Like a vehicle, it can end up with leaks and its moving parts can break down.

Having your system checked yearly by a Cool Power LLC technician can help locate minor problems before they lead to huge meltdowns. (And cause your system to stop working!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your cooling system is located outside your home, it’s more susceptible to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can negatively lower your unit’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to maintain delicate internal components.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard debris that build up in your system can push it to work harder and restrict airflow. Both these problems can lead to elevated energy use—and a bigger cooling bill!
  3. It could extend your equipment’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and might even help it run longer. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly electricity bill and in the long-term, as you won’t have to buy new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps determine small troubles before they turn into large, pricey troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will carefully look at parts and carry out a cycle of AC performance tests. These detailed procedures often allow us to identify problems before they lead to large troubles that cause an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver trouble-free comfort throughout the warmest days. After your AC is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your equipment is well-prepared to deliver worry-free cooling. Even on the warmest days. It’s one of the smartest approaches to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty valid. Most manufacturers expect seasonal maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this maintenance, your equipment is at risk for advanced breakdowns and limited efficiency.
