Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

May 08, 2020

As spring starts, you could be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Norco and St. Charles Parish? Even if your air conditioning system is recently installed or was operating good last season.

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

The same applies for your AC. It’s a piece of equipment that needs fuel and has moving pieces. Like a automobile, it can end up with leaks and its moving pieces can malfunction.

Having your equipment checked yearly by a Mayeuxs AC & Heating technician can help locate little problems before they become large breakdowns. (And cause your AC to stop working!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your cooling system is located outside your home, it’s more prone to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can negatively lower your system’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to service delicate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard debris that collect within your unit can force it to work harder and decrease airflow. Both these problems can lead to increased energy use—and a higher energy bill!
  3. It could prolong your unit’s life span. A clean air conditioner is an efficient one and might even help it run longer. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly electricity bill and over the long run, as you won’t have to buy new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps pinpoint small issues before they turn into major, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will carefully look at pieces and carry out a cycle of air conditioning performance tests. These all-inclusive processes often allow us to locate troubles before they turn into extensive problems that cause a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee trouble-free cooling throughout the summer. After your unit is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your unit is well-prepared to give worry-free comfort. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the wisest ways to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers call for annual maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this maintenance, your unit is open to early breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
