As warmer weather starts, you could be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Arlington? Even if your AC system is recently purchased or was running well last summer.

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

The same affects your air conditioner. It’s equipment that uses fuel and has moving parts. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving components can malfunction.

Having your system checked annually by a Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning tech can help spot small issues before they become large breakdowns. (And cause your air conditioning to stop operating!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your cooling system is installed outdoors, it’s more prone to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can greatly affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to service complicated internal parts.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate in your equipment can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these issues can cause higher energy consumption—and a higher utility bill!
  3. It could lengthen your equipment’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and might even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, because you won’t have to install new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps identify little troubles before they become big, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will closely examine parts and complete a cycle of AC performance verifications. These detailed procedures often allow us to locate troubles before they turn into extensive issues that result in a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee worry-free comfort throughout the summer. After your AC is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your system is ready to provide worry-free air. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the smartest 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 going. Without this service, your system is open to premature breakdowns and limited efficiency.
