Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Booking annual AC maintenance is useful.

Tune-ups keep your air conditioner unit in Daytona Beach operating at peak performance while keeping utility needs down. It also might even help prolong its life cycle.

While there are several tasks you can finish by yourself, you should hire Experts, like the ones at All American Air Service Experts, for AC checks and service.

Here are a few 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 involves a big portion of house, garage and yard cleaning. With the warmer temperatures right around the corner, it’s also a great idea to include AC checkups on that listing.

Spring is the best season to get your cooling equipment cleaned and inspected. Hesitating to turn it on until the first warm day of the year can be dicey. If you need service or a new unit, you could be waiting awhile for an appointment. And that can get extremely uncomfortable.

And for people with allergies, being well prepared with a clean air conditioning system will help provide the best indoor air quality during pollen season.

Additionally, air conditioner service may be a requirement for your unit’s manufacturer warranty or any additional extended warranty.

Can I Complete Maintenance Myself?

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

  • Put in a new air filter. Clogged filters restrict airflow and might lower your system’s efficiency. While the replacement timeline depends on the kind you use, the U.S. Department of Energy advises each month or two. This is especially crucial if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have a cat in your house.
  • Lawn maintenance near the exterior condenser. Make sure there’s no grass, weeds or bushes by your AC unit. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of open area. You should also remove any leaves or sticks that have collected inside your system, because this might block airflow.
