Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As spring begins, you might be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Omaha? Even if your cooling equipment is newer or was operating good last year.

Here’s one way to look at it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new vehicle and never have to request any service for it, such as getting new oil or getting new tires.

The same applies for your AC. It’s a piece of equipment that needs fuel and has moving components. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving parts can fail.

Having your system inspected annually by a The Frazier Company expert can help spot little problems before they turn into large malfunctions. (And cause your air conditioning to stop running!)

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 susceptible to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can majorly decrease your system’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we suggest calling a specialist to maintain delicate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate within your system can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these issues can create elevated energy use—and a more expensive cooling bill!
  3. It could prolong your system’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and might even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly electricity bill and over the years, since you won’t have to replace your equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps determine small troubles before they become major, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will closely inspect pieces and perform a series of cooling performance tests. These in-depth measures often allow us to locate troubles before they lead to big problems that lead to a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee worry-free operation throughout the warmest days. After your system is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your equipment is well-prepared to give worry-free air. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the best methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers call for annual maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this service, your system is at risk for premature meltdowns and decreased efficiency.
