Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Scheduling regular AC maintenance is useful.

Maintenance keeps your air conditioner system in Fort Worth running at peak performance while keeping energy consumption small. It also could even help extend its life expectancy.

While there are a couple tasks you can do alone, you should work with Experts, like the ones at Calverley Service Experts, for AC inspections and service.

Here are a couple steps you can complete alone as you prepare for warm weather.

Get Your AC Tune-Up Scheduled

Spring is a season of rejuvenation, and to many that involves a large portion of house, garage and yard freshening. With the warmer temps near, it’s also a fantastic idea to add AC checkups on that list.

Spring is the perfect time to get your AC unit scrubbed and checked out. Delaying to turn it on until the first sweltering day of the year can be a gamble. If you need a fix or installation, you could be waiting a long time for a tech. And that could get very unpleasant.

And for those with allergies, being well prepared with a clean AC system will help ensure the finest indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.

Plus, AC maintenance might be mandatory for your equipment’s manufacturer warranty or any extra extended warranty.

Can I Do Service Alone?

There are methods that you can complete to help keep your air conditioner equipment in the prime condition:

  • Put in a new air filter. Dirty filters block airflow and could lower your system’s efficiency. While replacement frequency depends on the model you use, the U.S. Department of Energy suggests each month or two. This is especially crucial if you deal with allergies or have a cat in your house.
  • Lawn upkeep by the outdoor condenser. Ensure there’s no grass, weeds or bushes by your air conditioning system. We recommend keeping 2–3 feet of clear space. You should also clear any leaves or sticks that have collected inside your system, since this can limit airflow.
