Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Booking routine AC maintenance is useful.

Tune-ups keep your AC system in London running at its best performance while keeping energy needs low. It also could even help extend its life cycle.

While there are a few jobs you can finish by yourself, you should call the Experts, like the ones at Roy Inch & Sons Service Experts, for AC checks and maintenance.

Here are several steps you can do alone as you prepare for cooling season.

Get Your AC Tune-Up Set

Spring is a period of revival, and to many that involves a large amount of home, garage and yard cleaning. With the warmer weather right around the corner, it’s also a good idea to include AC upkeep on that list.

Spring is a great time to get your air conditioning system scrubbed and inspected. Hesitating to switch it on until the first warm day of the summer can be a gamble. If you have to have a fix or a new unit, you could be waiting awhile for an appointment. And that could get very uncomfortable.

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

Also, AC service could be a requirement for your equipment’s manufacturer warranty or any extra extended warranty.

Can I Do a Tune-Up Alone?

There are procedures that you can take to help keep your air conditioner unit in the prime condition:

  • Change your air filter. Clogged filters limit airflow and can decrease your system’s efficiency. While the replacement timeline depends on the kind you have, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends each month or two. This is very important if you deal with allergies or have a dog in your home.
  • Lawn upkeep near the outside condenser. Make sure there’s not any grass, weeds or bushes by your cooling equipment. We recommend keeping 2–3 feet of open area. You should also remove any leaves or sticks that have dropped into your equipment, since this could limit airflow.
