As springtime begins, you may be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Columbus? Especially if your cooling equipment is up-to-date or was running well last year.

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

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

Having your unit checked yearly by a Classic Air professional can help spot minor issues before they turn into large malfunctions. (And cause your AC to stop running!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your cooling system is placed outdoors, it’s more inclined to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can majorly affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to service complicated internal components.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate in your unit can make it work harder and restrict airflow. Both these issues can lead to higher energy consumption—and a bigger utility bill!
  3. It could prolong your unit’s life span. A clean air conditioner is an efficient one and may even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly electricity costs and over the years, because you won’t have to replace your equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps identify little troubles before they turn into big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will carefully examine components and complete a set of air conditioning performance tests. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to locate problems before they turn into extensive issues that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free operation throughout the summer. After your equipment is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your unit is ready to provide worry-free comfort. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the smartest 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 advanced breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
