Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning routine AC maintenance is worthwhile.

Maintenance keeps your air conditioner equipment in Rochester operating at peak performance while keeping electricity needs down. It also can even help extend its life span.

While there are a few jobs you can do alone, you should work with Experts, like the ones at Strogen's Service Experts, for AC inspections and upkeep.

Here are several steps you can do on your own as you prepare for summer.

Get Your AC Tune-Up Booked

Spring is a period of revival, and to many that entails a big dose of house, garage and yard sprucing. With the toastier temps approaching, it’s also a fantastic idea to include AC maintenance on that list.

Spring is the perfect time to get your AC equipment freshened and checked out. Waiting to switch it on until the first warm day of the season can be a gamble. If you have to schedule a fix or replacement, you could be waiting awhile for a technician. And that can become extremely unbearable.

And for people with allergies, being one step ahead with a fresh air conditioning system will help ensure the greatest indoor air quality during pollen season.

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

Can I Finish a Tune-Up on My Own?

There are steps that you can take to help keep your cooling unit in the ultimate state:

  • Put in a new air filter. Clogged filters limit airflow and might lower your unit’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 important if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have pets in your home.
  • Lawn upkeep near the outside condenser. Make sure there’s not any grass, weeds or bushes by your AC system. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of free room. You should also clear any leaves or twigs that have fallen into your system, because this might impede airflow.

Let the Experts Take Care of the Rest
