As warmer weather begins, you could be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Auburn? Particularly if your air conditioning unit is recently installed or was running just fine last season.

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

The same is applicable to your air conditioning. It’s equipment that consumes fuel and has moving pieces. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving parts can wear out.

Having your unit checked seasonally by a Forster Heating expert can help spot small issues before they lead to large breakdowns. (And cause your AC to stop running!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your cooling system is located outdoors, it’s more susceptible to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can negatively affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to service complicated internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your AC efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate inside your unit can make it work harder and restrict airflow. Both these troubles can cause higher energy use—and a bigger cooling bill!
  3. It could extend your unit’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and might even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, as you won’t have to install new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps pinpoint little issues before they become big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will keenly examine components and complete a set of cooling performance tests. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to identify problems before they turn into big issues that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free cooling throughout the warmest days. After your AC is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your unit is ready to give worry-free air. Even on the warmest days. It’s one of the wisest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers call for regular maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this maintenance, your equipment is open to premature breakdowns and limited efficiency.
