As springtime starts, you might be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Laurel? Even if your AC system is newer or was running well last year.

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

The same affects your air conditioning. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving components. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving pieces can malfunction.

Having your unit checked yearly by a H&C Heating and Cooling pro can help spot small issues before they lead to large meltdowns. (And cause your system to stop working!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your AC is installed outdoors, it’s more inclined to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can majorly affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to service complicated internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate within your unit can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these problems can cause higher energy needs—and a bigger energy bill!
  3. It could prolong your unit’s life span. A clean AC 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 cooling costs and over the years, as you won’t have to buy new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps find little troubles before they turn into big, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will keenly examine pieces and complete a cycle of cooling performance verifications. These detailed procedures often allow us to identify troubles before they turn into big problems that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee worry-free comfort throughout the summer. After your unit 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 best methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this service, your unit is open to premature breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
