Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As warmer weather begins, you might be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Saint Petersburg? Particularly if your cooling unit is newer or was working just fine last season.

Here’s one method to look at it. You wouldn’t purchase a brand-new automobile and never expect to schedule any work for it, such as getting new oil or getting new tires.

The same applies for your AC. It’s a machine that uses fuel and has moving parts. Like a car, it can get leaks and its moving components can break down.

Having your equipment inspected seasonally by a Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc tech can help locate small issues before they turn into major meltdowns. (And cause your AC to stop working!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your cooling system is installed outside your home, it’s more inclined to accumulating dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can greatly affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we suggest calling a specialist to take care of intricate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate in your equipment can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these issues can cause higher energy use—and a more expensive energy bill!
  3. It could extend your system’s life span. A clean air conditioner is an efficient one and might even help it last longer. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly electricity costs and in the long-term, since you won’t have to install new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps identify little troubles before they become major, pricey troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will closely examine parts and carry out a cycle of air conditioning performance checks. These detailed measures often allow us to find issues before they turn into major problems that result in a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee stress-free operation throughout the summer. After your system is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your equipment is well-prepared to provide worry-free comfort. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the wisest approaches 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 tune-up, your unit is vulnerable to advanced meltdowns and decreased efficiency.
