Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As warmer weather starts, you could be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Muskogee? Even if your cooling equipment is newer or was running just fine last year.

Here’s one approach to look at it. You wouldn’t get a brand-new automobile and never have to schedule any service for it, such as changing the oil or buying new tires.

The same is applicable to your air conditioner. It’s a piece of equipment that uses fuel and has moving pieces. Like a automobile, it can end up with leaks and its moving parts can break down.

Having your equipment inspected seasonally by a Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc. tech can help locate small troubles before they turn into major malfunctions. (And cause your AC to stop running!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your AC is placed outdoors, it’s more vulnerable to accumulating dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can greatly lower your unit’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, you should call a pro to maintain complicated internal parts.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard debris that collect within your equipment can force it to work harder and restrict airflow. Both these troubles can lead to higher energy consumption—and a more expensive energy bill!
  3. It could prolong your equipment’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and might even help it last for a greater period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly cooling costs and in the long-term, since you won’t have to replace your equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps pinpoint minor problems before they lead to big, costly issues. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will keenly look at components and perform a series of cooling performance verifications. These all-inclusive processes often allow us to locate issues before they create big issues that lead to an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free operation throughout the season. After your system is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your equipment is ready to give worry-free air. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the smartest ways to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers expect annual maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this maintenance, your system is open to premature breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
