Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Scheduling yearly AC maintenance is useful.

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

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

Here are several steps you can do by yourself as you prepare for summer.

Get Your AC Maintenance Scheduled

Spring is a season of revival, and to many that entails a big amount of indoors, garage and yard sprucing. With the warmer temps near, it’s also a great idea to add AC service on that list.

Spring is the perfect time to get your AC unit scrubbed and checked out. Hesitating to turn it on until the first warm day of the year can be risky. If you need a fix or a new unit, you could be waiting days for a technician. And that may get very unbearable.

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

Also, air conditioning maintenance might be required for your equipment’s manufacturer warranty or any extra extended warranty.

Can I Do Maintenance on My Own?

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

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