Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As springtime rolls around, you may be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Newton? Especially if your cooling system is recently purchased or was cooling good last year.

Here’s one method to look at it. You wouldn’t get a brand-new vehicle and never expect to book any service for it, such as changing the oil or putting on new tires.

The same affects your AC. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving components. Like a vehicle, it can end up with leaks and its moving parts can wear out.

Having your equipment checked annually by a Brookwood Inc technician can help locate small problems before they become large breakdowns. (And cause your air conditioning to stop working!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your cooling system is placed outdoors, it’s more inclined to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can greatly lower your unit’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we suggest calling an expert to take care of delicate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that collect inside your equipment can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these issues can create elevated energy needs—and a more expensive utility bill!
  3. It could extend your unit’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and may even help it run longer. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly energy costs and over the years, since you won’t have to replace your equipment as soon.
  4. It helps locate minor problems before they become major, pricey troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will closely inspect components and complete a series of air conditioning performance tests. These in-depth processes often allow us to identify problems before they lead to extensive troubles that cause a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee trouble-free cooling throughout the season. After your unit is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your unit is well-prepared to give worry-free air. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the wisest approaches to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this maintenance, your system is open to advanced breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
