Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

May 08, 2020

As spring 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 contemplate it. You wouldn’t get a brand-new vehicle and never expect to request any service for it, such as changing the oil or purchasing new tires.

The same affects your air conditioning. It’s a piece of equipment that uses fuel and has moving pieces. Like a vehicle, it can end up with leaks and its moving parts can wear out.

Having your unit checked annually by a Brookwood Inc pro can help spot 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 air conditioner is placed outdoors, it’s more inclined to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can greatly impact your equipment’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 push it to work harder and decrease airflow. Both these issues can lead to elevated energy use—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 expenses and over the years, since you won’t have to buy new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps locate little problems before they become major, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will closely inspect components and complete a series of AC performance verifications. These in-depth processes often allow us to identify troubles before they become extensive issues that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver trouble-free cooling throughout the warmest days. After your unit is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your equipment is set to deliver worry-free comfort. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the wisest methods 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 vulnerable to early meltdowns and limited efficiency.
