Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As springtime rolls around, you may be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Oxford? Especially if your air conditioning equipment is newer or was operating just fine last season.

Here’s one approach to think about it. You wouldn’t purchase a brand-new automobile and never expect to request any maintenance for it, such as changing the oil or buying new tires.

The same affects your AC. It’s a piece of equipment that uses fuel and has moving parts. Like a automobile, it can end up with leaks and its moving components can break down.

Having your unit checked annually by a Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. pro can help locate minor issues before they lead to major meltdowns. (And cause your AC to stop operating!)

6 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 prone to accumulating dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can negatively lower your unit’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, you should call a professional to take care of intricate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard debris that collect within your system can force it to work harder and restrict airflow. Both these problems can cause higher energy use—and a bigger energy bill!
  3. It could extend your unit’s life span. A clean air conditioner is an efficient one and might even help it last longer. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly energy bill and over the years, since you won’t have to install new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps pinpoint little issues before they lead to large, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will closely examine parts and perform a set of air conditioning performance checks. These detailed measures often allow us to find issues before they become large troubles that lead to a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver stress-free operation throughout the season. After your air conditioner is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your system is prepped 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 going. Most manufacturers expect yearly maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this service, your system is at risk for advanced failure and limited efficiency.
