Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Booking routine AC maintenance is worthwhile.

Tune-ups keep your AC equipment in Sharonville operating at its top performance while keeping energy needs down. It also may even help extend its life expectancy.

While there are a couple things you can finish by yourself, you should call the Experts, like the ones at Knochelmann Service Experts, for AC checks and service.

Here are several steps you can do on your own as you prepare for warm weather.

Get Your AC Tune-Up Set

Spring is a period of renewal, and to many that includes a big dose of indoors, garage and yard freshening. With the warmer weather approaching, it’s also a fantastic idea to add AC tune-ups on that checklist.

Spring is a great season to get your cooling unit scrubbed and checked out. Hesitating to switch it on until the first hot day of the season can be dicey. If you have to schedule repair or installation, you may be waiting days for a tech. And that might get awfully uncomfortable.

And for those with allergies, being well prepared with a freshened cooling system will help ensure the best indoor air quality when it’s pollen season.

Plus, air conditioning service could be required for your equipment’s manufacturer warranty or any other extended warranty.

Can I Finish Service Myself?

There are steps that you can do to help keep your AC unit in the best order:

  • Change your air filter. Clogged filters limit airflow and might reduce your system’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the model you install, the U.S. Department of Energy suggests each month or two. This is very important if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have pets in your house.
  • Lawn work near the exterior condenser. Ensure there’s not any grass, weeds or bushes by your air conditioning equipment. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of open room. You should also get rid of any leaves or twigs that have collected inside your system, because this can block airflow.
