Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Booking routine AC maintenance is worth the effort.

Checkups keep your air conditioner equipment in Waldorf working at peak performance while keeping utility needs down. It also could even help lengthen its life cycle.

While there are a few tasks you can complete by yourself, you should hire Experts, like the ones at A-PLUS Service Experts, for AC inspections and service.

Here are several steps you can take alone as you get ready for warm weather.

Get Your AC Tune-Up Booked

Spring is a period of renewal, and to many that entails a large amount of indoors, garage and yard freshening. With the warmer weather near, it’s also a good idea to include AC maintenance on that checklist.

Spring is a great season to get your AC unit scrubbed and examined. Hesitating to switch it on until the first warm day of the summer can be a gamble. If you need repair or a new unit, you could be waiting a long time for a technician. And that may turn awfully unpleasant.

And for allergy sufferers, being ahead of the game with a clean AC system will help provide the greatest indoor air quality during pollen season.

Also, AC upkeep could be a requirement for your unit’s manufacturer warranty or any applicable extended warranty.

Can I Finish Service on My Own?

There are procedures that you can do to help keep your AC system in the best condition:

  • Replace your air filter. Dirty filters limit airflow and may lower your system’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the type of filter you have, the U.S. Department of Energy advises each month or two. This is especially crucial if you suffer from allergies or have pets in your house.
  • Lawn work near the outside condenser. Ensure there’s not any grass, weeds or bushes by your cooling equipment. We suggest keeping 2–3 feet of open area. You should also remove any leaves or sticks that have collected inside your system, as this may impede airflow.
