Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As warmer weather begins, you might be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Saint Petersburg? Even if your cooling equipment is newer or was operating just fine last season.

Here’s one approach to contemplate it. You wouldn’t get a brand-new vehicle and never expect to schedule any service for it, such as getting new oil or getting new tires.

The same is applicable to your air conditioning. It’s a machine that needs fuel and has moving parts. Like a car, it can end up with leaks and its moving pieces can break down.

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

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your air conditioner is installed outdoors, it’s more inclined to accumulating dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can greatly affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to take care of intricate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate within your equipment can push it to work harder and lower airflow. Both these issues can cause elevated energy needs—and a bigger energy bill!
  3. It could extend your system’s life span. A clean air conditioner is an efficient one and could even help it last longer. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly electricity expenses and in the long-term, since you won’t have to install new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps identify little issues before they become major, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will closely examine pieces and complete a cycle of air conditioning performance checks. These all-inclusive measures often allow us to locate issues before they turn into major problems that result in a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee worry-free operation throughout the summer. After your AC is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your equipment is well-prepared to provide worry-free comfort. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the smartest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers call for regular maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this tune-up, your system is open to early breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
