Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As spring rolls around, you could be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Dayton? Particularly if your cooling system is up-to-date or was cooling good last year.

Here’s one approach to look at it. You wouldn’t get a brand-new car and never expect to schedule any work for it, such as putting in fresh oil or putting on new tires.

The same is applicable to your AC. It’s a piece of equipment that consumes fuel and has moving parts. Like a automobile, it can end up with leaks and its moving components can fail.

Having your equipment examined yearly by a Jent Mechanical LLC expert can help spot minor issues before they lead to major meltdowns. (And cause your equipment to stop working!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your cooling system is located outside your home, it’s more susceptible to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can majorly impact your unit’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, you should call a specialist to service delicate internal components.
  2. It keeps your AC efficient. Dirt and yard debris that collect inside your system can force it to work harder and lower airflow. Both these troubles can create higher energy consumption—and a higher cooling bill!
  3. It could prolong your system’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and may even help it run longer. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly cooling bill and over the years, since you won’t have to buy new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps identify little issues before they become big, pricey troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will closely examine pieces and carry out a series of AC performance verifications. These detailed processes often allow us to find issues before they turn into major issues that cause a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free cooling throughout the summer. After your system is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your system is well-prepared to provide worry-free comfort. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the wisest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers expect regular maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this maintenance, your equipment is at risk for advanced failure and lowered efficiency.
