As warmer weather rolls around, you may be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Carpentersville? Particularly if your AC unit is recently purchased or was running just fine last season.

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

The same affects your air conditioner. It’s equipment that uses fuel and has moving components. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving pieces can fail.

Having your equipment checked yearly by a Controlled Comfort HVAC expert can help spot small issues before they lead to large meltdowns. (And cause your AC to stop working!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your air conditioner is installed outdoors, it’s more susceptible to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can greatly affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to service intricate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your AC efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate inside your equipment can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these problems can lead to higher energy use—and a bigger cooling bill!
  3. It could prolong your equipment’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and could even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly energy costs and over the years, as you won’t have to get new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps find little issues before they turn into big, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will keenly examine components and complete a set of air conditioning performance verifications. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to locate issues before they turn into large troubles that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free cooling throughout the summer. After your unit is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your system is ready to give worry-free air. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the wisest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers expect regular maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this tune-up, your system is open to early breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
