Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As spring starts, you could be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Anaheim? Even if your air conditioning unit is newer or was operating good last season.

Here’s one way to think about it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new car and never expect to schedule any work for it, such as changing the oil or purchasing new tires.

The same is applicable to your air conditioner. It’s a machine that consumes fuel and has moving parts. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving components can fail.

Having your system inspected annually by a Eco Fresh HVAC Inc. tech can help find minor troubles before they turn into huge breakdowns. (And cause your system to stop operating!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your air conditioner is installed outdoors, it’s more susceptible to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can negatively impact your equipment’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to take care of complicated internal components.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that collect inside your equipment can force it to work harder and restrict airflow. Both these issues can lead to increased energy use—and a higher utility bill!
  3. It could prolong your system’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and may even help it last for a greater period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly energy expenses and over the long run, as you won’t have to buy new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps pinpoint little issues before they turn into big, pricey troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will carefully look at pieces and complete a series of AC performance checks. These detailed measures often allow us to find problems before they lead to extensive problems that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure stress-free operation throughout the warmest days. After your unit is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your unit is prepped to deliver worry-free air. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the smartest ways to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty valid. Most manufacturers require yearly maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this tune-up, your system is at risk for early meltdowns and limited efficiency.
