Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Booking yearly AC maintenance is useful.

Checkups keep your air conditioning unit in Richmond working at its best performance while keeping utility usage down. It also might even help lengthen its life span.

While there are several things you can do alone, you should hire Experts, like the ones at Eveready Service Experts , for AC inspections and service.

Here are several steps you can take alone as you get ready for warm weather.

Get Your AC Tune-Up Booked

Spring is a time of rejuvenation, and to many that involves a big dose of indoors, garage and yard sprucing. With the warmer temperatures right around the corner, it’s also a fantastic idea to include AC tune-ups on that checklist.

Spring is a great season to get your cooling unit cleaned and examined. Hesitating to switch it on until the first warm day of the year can be dicey. If you have to schedule service or replacement, you might be waiting days for a technician. And that might turn awfully uncomfortable.

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

Also, air conditioning service can be a requirement for your unit’s manufacturer warranty or any extra extended warranty.

Can I Do Service Myself?

There are methods that you can complete to help keep your air conditioner unit in the top order:

  • Change your air filter. Clogged filters limit airflow and can lower your system’s efficiency. While replacement frequency depends on the kind you use, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends each month or two. This is particularly important if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have pets in your house.
  • Lawn maintenance by the exterior condenser. Ensure there’s no grass, weeds or bushes close to your cooling system. We recommend keeping 2–3 feet of open room. You should also get rid of any leaves or twigs that have collected inside your equipment, since this may impede airflow.

Let the Pros Take Care of the Rest
