Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning yearly AC maintenance is helpful.

Maintenance keeps your air conditioner unit in Grand Island operating at peak performance while keeping energy consumption low. It also might even help lengthen its life cycle.

While there are several tasks you can do by yourself, you should call the Experts, like the ones at McElroy Service Experts, for AC examinations and upkeep.

Here are several steps you can do alone as you prepare for warm weather.

Get Your AC Maintenance Booked

Spring is a season of revival, and to many that entails a hefty portion of house, garage and yard sprucing. With the toastier temps approaching, it’s also a good idea to put AC checkups on that listing.

Spring is the best time to get your cooling system scrubbed and inspected. Delaying to flip it on until the first sweltering day of the season can be risky. If you have to schedule repair or a new unit, you might be waiting a long time for a technician. And that may become very unbearable.

And for those with allergies, being ahead of the game with a fresh AC system will help ensure the finest indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.

Plus, air conditioning maintenance could be mandatory for your system’s manufacturer warranty or any additional extended warranty.

Can I Do Service Myself?

There are steps that you can take to help keep your cooling system in the ultimate condition:

  • Change your air filter. Clogged filters limit airflow and may decrease your unit’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the type of filter you have, the U.S. Department of Energy advises each month or two. This is very necessary if you suffer from allergies or have a dog in your residence.
  • Lawn upkeep by the exterior condenser. Ensure there’s no grass, weeds or bushes near your air conditioning system. We suggest keeping 2–3 feet of clear space. You should also clear any leaves or twigs that have dropped into your system, because this could limit airflow.
