Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As warmer weather starts, you might be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Columbus? Especially if your cooling equipment is recently installed or was running just fine last season.

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

The same affects your air conditioner. It’s a piece of equipment that needs fuel and has moving components. Like a car, it can get leaks and its moving parts can fail.

Having your unit inspected yearly by a Wolfe & Sons Heating and Cooling tech can help find little problems before they lead to large malfunctions. (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 AC is installed outside, it’s more vulnerable to accumulating dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can greatly impact your system’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to maintain intricate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that collect within your system can push it to work harder and restrict airflow. Both these troubles can create increased energy use—and a more expensive utility bill!
  3. It could extend your unit’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and may even help it work for a greater period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, since you won’t have to buy new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps pinpoint little troubles before they become major, expensive troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will closely inspect components and complete a cycle of air conditioning performance tests. These in-depth processes often allow us to locate problems before they turn into extensive problems that lead to a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free cooling throughout the season. After your system is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your unit is set to deliver worry-free cooling. Even on the warmest days. It’s one of the wisest ways 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 system is at risk for early meltdowns and limited efficiency.
