Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As springtime begins, you might be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in York? Particularly if your AC unit is recently installed or was cooling well last season.

Here’s one way to think about it. You wouldn’t get a brand-new automobile and never have to schedule any work for it, such as putting in fresh oil or purchasing new tires.

The same affects your air conditioner. It’s a piece of equipment that consumes fuel and has moving components. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving components can wear out.

Having your unit examined yearly by a Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning professional can help locate little problems before they become major breakdowns. (And cause your system to stop running!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your air conditioner is located outside your home, it’s more susceptible to accumulating dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can negatively affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, you should call a specialist to take care of delicate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your AC efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that build up in your equipment can force it to work harder and restrict airflow. Both these issues can cause increased energy use—and a bigger cooling bill!
  3. It could lengthen your unit’s life span. A clean air conditioner is an efficient one and may even help it run for a greater period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly electricity costs and over the long run, as you won’t have to get new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps pinpoint minor troubles before they lead to large, pricey issues. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will keenly look at parts and carry out a series of AC performance tests. These all-inclusive processes often allow us to locate problems before they turn into big troubles that cause a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free comfort throughout the season. After your equipment is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your unit is prepped to give worry-free cooling. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the best methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers call for yearly maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this service, your system is open to premature meltdowns and lowered efficiency.
