As springtime begins, you might be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Rio Grande Valley? Especially if your AC equipment is newer or was running well last year.

Here’s one method to look at it. You wouldn’t get a brand-new vehicle and never have to request any service for it, such as putting in fresh oil or putting on new tires.

The same is applicable to your air conditioning. It’s equipment that uses fuel and has moving pieces. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving parts can wear out.

Having your unit checked annually by a Cytech Heating & Cooling L.C. expert can help spot small issues before they become large malfunctions. (And cause your equipment to stop running!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your air conditioner is installed outdoors, it’s more susceptible to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can greatly affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to service intricate internal components.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate within your equipment can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these problems can lead to higher energy needs—and a bigger energy bill!
  3. It could extend your unit’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and may even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, because you won’t have to buy new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps pinpoint little issues before they become big, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will closely examine pieces and complete a series of cooling performance verifications. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to locate problems before they turn into large issues that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee worry-free operation throughout the season. After your unit is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your system is ready to provide worry-free comfort. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the best methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty valid. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this tune-up, your system is open to premature breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
