Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As spring begins, you could be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Front Royal? Even if your cooling unit is up-to-date or was working well last year.

Here’s one method to look at it. You wouldn’t get a brand-new car and never have to request any maintenance for it, such as changing the oil or purchasing new tires.

The same affects your air conditioner. It’s a machine that consumes fuel and has moving parts. Like a automobile, it can end up with leaks and its moving pieces can malfunction.

Having your system inspected seasonally by a Dave's Diversified Services technician can help find small problems before they lead to major breakdowns. (And cause your system to stop operating!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your cooling system is installed outside your home, it’s more susceptible to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can majorly impact your system’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a specialist to service delicate internal components.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate inside your unit can push it to work harder and restrict airflow. Both these issues can lead to elevated energy needs—and a higher energy bill!
  3. It could prolong your equipment’s life span. A clean air conditioner is an efficient one and could even help it last for a greater period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly energy expenses and over the long run, since you won’t have to replace your equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps spot minor issues before they lead to major, pricey troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will carefully examine parts and complete a cycle of cooling performance verifications. These in-depth procedures often allow us to find issues before they turn into large issues that lead to an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver stress-free cooling throughout the warmest days. After your equipment is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your equipment is set to give worry-free comfort. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the smartest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty valid. Most manufacturers expect regular maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this tune-up, your unit is open to early breakdowns and limited efficiency.
