Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning routine AC maintenance is useful.

Service keeps your air conditioner system in Denver running at peak performance while keeping energy consumption down. It also might even help prolong its life expectancy.

While there are several things you can complete by yourself, you should call the Experts, like the ones at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, for AC inspections and upkeep.

Here are several steps you can take by yourself as you prepare for cooling season.

Get Your AC Tune-Up Scheduled

Spring is a time of renewal, and to many that entails a large dose of indoors, garage and yard sprucing. With the hotter temperatures near, it’s also a good idea to add AC maintenance on that checklist.

Spring is the best time of year to get your cooling system scrubbed and examined. Waiting to switch it on until the first sweltering day of the year can be dicey. If you have to have repair or replacement, you could be waiting awhile for an appointment. And that might become very uncomfortable.

And for people with allergies, being well prepared with a fresh AC system will help provide the finest indoor air quality when it’s pollen season.

Plus, air conditioning upkeep might be required for your equipment’s manufacturer warranty or any other extended warranty.

Can I Complete Maintenance Alone?

There are steps that you can complete to help keep your cooling system in the top state:

  • Replace your air filter. Clogged filters restrict airflow and could reduce your system’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the model you have, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends each month or two. This is especially important if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have animals in your house.
  • Lawn work by the outdoor condenser. Check there’s no grass, weeds or bushes near your cooling system. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of free room. You should also clear any leaves or sticks that have collected inside your unit, as this could impede airflow.

Let the Professionals Take Care of the Rest
