Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning routine AC maintenance is worthwhile.

Tune-ups keep your AC equipment in Sharonville operating at its best performance while keeping energy consumption small. It also could even help extend its life expectancy.

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

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

Get Your AC Tune-Up Booked

Spring is a period of renewal, and to many that includes a large dose of indoors, garage and yard sprucing. With the warmer weather near, it’s also a great idea to add AC tune-ups on that listing.

Spring is the best season to get your air conditioning equipment scrubbed and checked out. Hesitating to flip it on until the first hot day of the summer can be dicey. If you have to have repair or a new unit, you might be waiting a long time for a technician. And that might get extremely uncomfortable.

And for those with allergies, being one step ahead with a fresh cooling system will help ensure the best indoor air quality when it’s pollen season.

Also, air conditioning service could be mandatory for your unit’s manufacturer warranty or any other extended warranty.

Can I Finish Service Myself?

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

  • Change your air filter. Clogged filters limit airflow and can lower your system’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the model you have, the U.S. Department of Energy suggests each month or two. This is very important if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have a dog in your house.
  • Lawn work near the exterior condenser. Check the area is free of grass, weeds or bushes near your cooling equipment. We suggest keeping 2–3 feet of open area. You should also clear any leaves or twigs that have dropped into your system, because this can block airflow.
