As warmer weather begins, you may be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in York? Even if your cooling system is recently purchased or was running good last season.

Here’s one way to look at it. You wouldn’t purchase a brand-new car and never expect to request any maintenance for it, such as putting in fresh oil or buying new tires.

The same is applicable to your air conditioning. It’s equipment that uses fuel and has moving pieces. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving components can fail.

Having your equipment checked seasonally by a Strine's technician can help spot minor issues before they turn into large malfunctions. (And cause your unit to stop operating!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your cooling system is located outdoors, it’s more susceptible to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can negatively affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling an expert to service delicate internal components.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate in your system can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these problems can cause higher energy consumption—and a bigger cooling bill!
  3. It could prolong your unit’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and could even help it run for a longer period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, because you won’t have to replace your equipment as fast.
  4. It helps spot little troubles before they become big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will carefully examine pieces and complete a series of cooling performance tests. These in-depth procedures often allow us to identify issues before they turn into extensive problems that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free operation throughout the warmest days. After your air conditioner is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your unit is ready to provide worry-free cooling. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the smartest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers expect regular maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this work, your unit is open to early breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
