As warmer weather rolls around, you may be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Frederick? Even if your cooling system is up-to-date or was running just fine last season.

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

The same affects your air conditioner. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving parts. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving pieces can wear out.

Having your system checked seasonally by a May's Heating & Air expert can help spot little issues before they turn into large malfunctions. (And cause your system to stop operating!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your cooling system is placed outdoors, it’s more vulnerable to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can greatly affect your system’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to service complicated internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate within your equipment can make it work harder and restrict airflow. Both these troubles can cause higher energy needs—and a higher cooling bill!
  3. It could prolong your system’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and could even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly energy costs and over the years, since you won’t have to buy new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps pinpoint little problems before they become big, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will keenly examine pieces and complete a set of cooling performance tests. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to identify troubles before they turn into big troubles that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free comfort throughout the warmest days. After your air conditioner is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your equipment is ready to deliver worry-free cooling. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the wisest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this tune-up, your equipment is open to advanced breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
