Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning routine AC maintenance is worth the effort.

Service keeps your air conditioning unit in Savannah working at its best performance while keeping electricity usage low. It also may even help lengthen its life cycle.

While there are several jobs you can do by yourself, you should hire Experts, like the ones at Coastal Service Experts, for AC checks and maintenance.

Here are a few steps you can take on your own as you prepare for cooling season.

Get Your AC Service Set

Spring is a time of renewal, and to many that entails a large portion of house, garage and yard freshening. With the hotter temperatures near, it’s also a good idea to include AC checkups on that listing.

Spring is a great time to get your cooling system scrubbed and inspected. Delaying to turn it on until the first hot day of the year can be risky. If you have to have repair or replacement, you might be waiting days for a tech. And that can turn awfully unbearable.

And for allergy sufferers, being one step ahead with a fresh air conditioning system will help ensure the best indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.

Also, cooling service can be a requirement for your system’s manufacturer warranty or any other extended warranty.

Can I Complete Maintenance Alone?

There are procedures that you can do to help keep your air conditioner equipment in the ultimate state:

  • Put in a new air filter. Filthy filters restrict airflow and could reduce your unit’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the type of filter you have, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends each month or two. This is especially important if you suffer from allergies or have animals in your house.
  • Lawn work near the outside condenser. Make sure there’s no grass, weeds or bushes close to your cooling equipment. We recommend keeping 2–3 feet of free room. You should also remove any leaves or branches that have dropped into your system, because this could impede airflow.
