As spring begins, you could be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in York? Particularly if your air conditioning unit is newer or was running good last year.

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

The same applies for your air conditioner. It’s equipment that uses fuel and has moving parts. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving parts can wear out.

Having your equipment checked annually by a Strine's technician can help spot minor issues before they lead to large breakdowns. (And cause your system to stop working!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your AC is located outdoors, it’s more vulnerable to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can majorly affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to service complicated internal parts.
  2. It keeps your AC efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate in your unit can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these troubles can create higher energy needs—and a higher utility bill!
  3. It could extend your unit’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and could even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly electricity costs and over the years, since you won’t have to get new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps spot little troubles before they become big, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will carefully examine components and complete a series of AC performance tests. These in-depth procedures often allow us to find problems before they turn into big issues that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free comfort throughout the warmest days. After your unit is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your equipment is ready to deliver worry-free air. Even on the warmest days. It’s one of the wisest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty valid. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this service, your equipment is open to early breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
