Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Booking routine AC maintenance is useful.

Checkups keep your AC system in London operating at its top performance while keeping energy needs low. It also may even help extend its life cycle.

While there are a few things you can finish by yourself, you should hire 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 Maintenance Booked

Spring is a season of revival, and to many that involves a big portion of home, garage and yard cleaning. With the warmer weather right around the corner, it’s also a good idea to put AC maintenance on that list.

Spring is the best time to get your cooling system freshened and inspected. Hesitating to flip it on until the first warm day of the summer can be risky. 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 those with allergies, being well prepared with a freshened cooling system will help provide the finest indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.

Plus, AC upkeep might be a requirement for your equipment’s manufacturer warranty or any applicable extended warranty.

Can I Do a Tune-Up on My Own?

There are methods that you can complete to help keep your air conditioner equipment in the prime condition:

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