Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As springtime starts, you may be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Menomonie and western Wisconsin? Particularly if your air conditioning system is up-to-date or was working well last summer.

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

The same applies for your AC. It’s a piece of equipment that consumes fuel and has moving parts. Like a car, it can develop leaks and its moving pieces can fail.

Having your unit examined annually by a Halverson Brothers Inc professional can help spot minor troubles before they become major malfunctions. (And cause your AC to stop operating!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your AC is placed outdoors, it’s more vulnerable to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can negatively impact your unit’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, you should call a pro to take care of complicated internal parts.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that build up inside your equipment can force it to work harder and decrease airflow. Both these troubles can lead to higher energy consumption—and a bigger energy bill!
  3. It could lengthen your system’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and may even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly cooling expenses and over the long run, since you won’t have to buy new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps determine small troubles before they turn into major, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will closely look at components and perform a series of air conditioning performance tests. These detailed measures often allow us to locate issues before they turn into large issues that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee trouble-free cooling throughout the season. After your equipment is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your system is ready to give worry-free cooling. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the best approaches to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty valid. Most manufacturers call for seasonal maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this work, your system is vulnerable to early breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
