As spring begins, you could be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Jefferson? Especially if your air conditioning system is recently purchased or was running well last year.

Here’s one way to look at it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new vehicle and never anticipate to request any service for it, such as putting in fresh oil or purchasing new tires.

The same applies for your AC. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving components. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving parts can break down.

Having your equipment checked seasonally by a Pratt Brothers professional can help spot minor issues before they become large breakdowns. (And cause your unit to stop operating!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your air conditioner is placed outdoors, it’s more prone to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can majorly affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to service delicate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate inside your system can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these issues can cause higher energy needs—and a higher energy bill!
  3. It could prolong your equipment’s life span. A clean air conditioner 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 energy costs and over the years, since you won’t have to install new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps pinpoint little troubles before they turn into big, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will closely examine components and complete a series of air conditioning performance verifications. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to identify troubles before they turn into extensive issues that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free cooling throughout the warmest days. After your AC is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your system is ready to deliver worry-free air. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the best methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this service, your unit is open to early breakdowns and limited efficiency.
