Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Booking annual AC maintenance is worth the effort.

Maintenance keeps your air conditioner equipment in Canada operating at peak performance while keeping electricity usage small. It also could even help extend its life span.

While there are several tasks you can finish by yourself, you should hire Experts, like the ones at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, for AC examinations and maintenance.

Here are a couple steps you can do alone as you prepare for cooling season.

Get Your AC Checkup Scheduled

Spring is a time of renewal, and to many that entails a large portion of indoors, garage and yard cleaning. With the toastier temperatures right around the corner, it’s also a great idea to include AC maintenance on that checklist.

Spring is the perfect season to get your air conditioning system cleaned and inspected. Waiting to switch it on until the first sweltering day of the summer can be dicey. If you have to schedule service or replacement, you could be waiting awhile for a tech. And that can get very uncomfortable.

And for allergy sufferers, being well prepared with a clean AC system will help ensure the finest indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.

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

Can I Complete Maintenance Myself?

There are steps that you can take to help keep your air conditioner unit in the ultimate state:

  • Put in a new air filter. Filthy filters limit airflow and might lower your system’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the type of filter you use, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends each month or two. This is particularly necessary if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have animals in your residence.
  • Lawn maintenance around the outdoor condenser. Check there’s not any grass, weeds or bushes by your AC system. We suggest keeping 2–3 feet of free room. You should also get rid of any leaves or branches that have fallen into your system, because this may limit airflow.

Let the Experts Take Care of the Rest
