Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As spring starts, you might be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Edinburg? Even if your air conditioning system is up-to-date or was operating just fine last year.

Here’s one approach to think about it. You wouldn’t get a brand-new car and never expect to request any work for it, such as changing the oil or buying new tires.

The same affects your AC. It’s a machine that uses fuel and has moving parts. Like a automobile, it can develop leaks and its moving components can break down.

Having your equipment inspected yearly by a Cytech Heating & Cooling tech can help find minor issues before they lead to huge meltdowns. (And cause your unit to stop operating!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your air conditioner is located outdoors, it’s more susceptible to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can majorly lower your equipment’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 system efficient. Dirt and yard debris that build up inside your unit can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these problems can create elevated energy needs—and a more expensive utility bill!
  3. It could extend your unit’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and might even help it run longer. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly cooling expenses and over the years, since you won’t have to install new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps pinpoint little problems before they become big, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will carefully examine parts and complete a set of cooling performance checks. These in-depth processes often allow us to identify troubles before they become big issues that lead to an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee trouble-free comfort throughout the season. After your air conditioner is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your unit is prepped to give worry-free cooling. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers require annual maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this tune-up, your equipment is vulnerable to early breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
