As springtime begins, you might be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Kankakee? Especially if your cooling unit is recently installed or was running just fine last year.

Here’s one approach to look at it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new car and never anticipate to request any service for it, such as putting in fresh oil or putting on new tires.

The same applies for your air conditioning. It’s equipment that consumes fuel and has moving parts. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving components can fail.

Having your unit checked yearly by a Home Furniture, Plumbing & Heating tech can help spot minor issues before they lead to large breakdowns. (And cause your system to stop working!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your cooling system is located outdoors, it’s more inclined to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can majorly affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling an expert to service intricate internal components.
  2. It keeps your AC efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate in your equipment can make it work harder and restrict airflow. Both these problems can create higher energy needs—and a more expensive cooling bill!
  3. It could lengthen your equipment’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and may even help it run for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, as you won’t have to install new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps locate little problems before they turn into big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will closely examine parts and complete a set of cooling performance verifications. These in-depth procedures often allow us to find troubles before they turn into large troubles that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free cooling throughout the summer. After your air conditioner is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your unit is ready to give worry-free air. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the smartest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers expect regular maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this tune-up, your unit is open to advanced breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
