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 air conditioning equipment is newer or was cooling good last summer.

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

The same affects your air conditioner. It’s equipment that consumes fuel and has moving pieces. Like a automobile, it can end up with leaks and its moving pieces can wear out.

Having your unit checked 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 unit clean. Since your air conditioner is located outdoors, it’s more susceptible to accumulating dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can majorly affect your unit’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 equipment 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 more expensive cooling bill!
  3. It could prolong 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 years, as you won’t have to get new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps pinpoint little troubles before they turn into big, costly issues. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will keenly look at pieces and complete a series of air conditioning performance verifications. These detailed processes often allow us to find troubles before they turn into big issues that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee stress-free comfort throughout the season. After your equipment is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your unit is prepped to deliver worry-free cooling. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the best approaches to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers expect yearly maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this service, your unit is open to premature breakdowns and limited efficiency.
