Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning annual AC maintenance is useful.

Checkups keep your air conditioner equipment in Daytona Beach operating at peak performance while keeping utility consumption small. It also might even help prolong its life cycle.

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

Here are a few steps you can do by yourself as you prepare for cooling season.

Get Your AC Checkup Scheduled

Spring is a time of renewal, and to many that entails a big portion of house, garage and yard cleaning. With the warmer temps right around the corner, it’s also a fantastic idea to put AC checkups on that listing.

Spring is the best time of year to get your air conditioning equipment cleaned and examined. Hesitating to turn it on until the first sweltering day of the year can be dicey. If you need a fix or installation, you could be waiting awhile for an appointment. And that can get extremely uncomfortable.

And for those with allergies, being one step ahead 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 Service Myself?

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

  • Change your air filter. Clogged filters limit airflow and might reduce your system’s efficiency. While the replacement timeline depends on the model you use, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends each month or two. This is especially necessary if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have a cat in your house.
  • Lawn upkeep near the exterior condenser. Make sure there’s no grass, weeds or bushes by your AC unit. We suggest keeping 2–3 feet of free area. You should also remove any leaves or sticks that have collected inside your system, because this can block airflow.

Let the Pros Manage the Rest
