As warmer weather begins, you could be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Kankakee? Especially if your AC system is recently purchased or was running good 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 affects your air conditioning. It’s equipment that consumes fuel and has moving parts. Like a car, it can get leaks and its moving components can fail.

Having your system checked annually by a Home Furniture, Plumbing & Heating tech can help spot little issues before they become large malfunctions. (And cause your air conditioning to stop working!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your air conditioner is installed outdoors, it’s more vulnerable to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can greatly affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling an expert to service delicate internal components.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate in your unit can make it work harder and restrict airflow. Both these troubles can cause higher energy consumption—and a more expensive energy bill!
  3. It could prolong your unit’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and could even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly energy costs and over the years, because you won’t have to replace your equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps determine little problems before they turn into big, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will closely examine parts and complete a set of AC performance verifications. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to locate issues before they turn into extensive problems that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free cooling throughout the summer. After your AC is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your unit is ready to deliver worry-free comfort. Even on the warmest days. It’s one of the best methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this maintenance, your equipment is open to premature breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
