Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning annual AC maintenance is useful.

Maintenance keeps your air conditioner equipment in Voorhees running at peak performance while keeping electricity usage small. It also can even help lengthen its life span.

While there are a few tasks you can finish by yourself, you should work with Experts, like the ones at Atmostemp Service Experts, for AC inspections and service.

Here are a couple steps you can do by yourself as you prep for warm weather.

Get Your AC Checkup Set

Spring is a season of renewal, and to many that includes a large portion of house, garage and yard sprucing. With the warmer temps approaching, it’s also a great idea to add AC checkups on that listing.

Spring is the perfect season to get your cooling unit scrubbed and checked out. Waiting to turn it on until the first hot day of the year can be a gamble. If you need a fix or a new unit, you could be waiting days for a tech. And that might become awfully unpleasant.

And for those with allergies, being ahead of the game with a fresh AC system will help assure the greatest indoor air quality during pollen season.

Additionally, air conditioner upkeep might be a requirement for your unit’s manufacturer warranty or any additional extended warranty.

Can I Complete Service Alone?

There are steps that you can take to help keep your cooling unit in the prime order:

  • Change your air filter. Clogged filters restrict airflow and can decrease your system’s efficiency. While the replacement timeline depends on the type of filter you use, the U.S. Department of Energy advises each month or two. This is particularly crucial if you deal with allergies or have animals in your house.
  • Lawn maintenance by the outdoor condenser. Check the area is free of grass, weeds or bushes by your cooling equipment. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of free room. You should also remove any leaves or twigs that have dropped into your system, as this may impede airflow.
