As spring starts, you may be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Cambridge? Especially if your cooling system is up-to-date or was running well last season.

Here’s one way to look at it. You wouldn’t purchase a brand-new automobile and never expect to request any service for it, such as putting in fresh oil or getting new tires.

The same applies for your AC. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving pieces. Like a car, it can get leaks and its moving pieces can fail.

Having your equipment checked annually by a Pliescott HVAC Services LLC technician can help spot minor issues before they become large meltdowns. (And cause your equipment to stop working!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your AC is placed outdoors, it’s more prone to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can greatly affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a specialist to service complicated internal components.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate in your system can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these issues can create higher energy consumption—and a bigger utility bill!
  3. It could extend your unit’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and may even help it run for a longer period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly electricity costs and over the years, as you won’t have to install new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps spot little issues before they turn into big, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will closely examine parts and complete a series of cooling performance verifications. These detailed procedures often allow us to locate problems before they turn into major issues that result in a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free operation throughout the warmest days. After your system is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your equipment is ready to provide worry-free air. Even on the warmest 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 service, your system is open to early breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
