Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As springtime begins, you might be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Racine? Even if your cooling system is newer or was cooling well last season.

Here’s one way to think about it. You wouldn’t purchase a brand-new vehicle and never have to book any service for it, such as changing the oil or putting on new tires.

The same affects your AC. It’s a piece of equipment that uses fuel and has moving components. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving components can wear out.

Having your system inspected yearly by a Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc professional can help find small troubles before they become major meltdowns. (And cause your system to stop operating!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your air conditioner is installed outside, it’s more inclined to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can greatly decrease your equipment’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, you should call an expert to take care of delicate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate in your equipment can make it work harder and restrict airflow. Both these problems can lead to increased energy needs—and a higher utility bill!
  3. It could lengthen your system’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and could even help it run longer. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly electricity bill and over the long run, since you won’t have to get new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps find minor troubles before they become big, costly troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will carefully inspect components and carry out a cycle of AC performance tests. These all-inclusive processes often allow us to identify problems before they turn into major problems that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver trouble-free cooling throughout the warmest days. After your system is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your equipment is prepped to give worry-free cooling. Even on the warmest days. It’s one of the wisest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers require annual maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this maintenance, your equipment is open to advanced meltdowns and limited efficiency.
