Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Booking routine AC maintenance is helpful.

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

While there are a couple jobs you can do by yourself, you should call the Experts, like the ones at Coastal Service Experts, for AC examinations and service.

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

Get Your AC Service Booked

Spring is a time of renewal, and to many that involves a big portion of house, garage and yard sprucing. With the hotter temps near, it’s also a good idea to put AC service on that listing.

Spring is a great time to get your cooling system scrubbed and examined. Hesitating to turn it on until the first hot day of the year can be a gamble. If you have to have repair or replacement, you may be waiting a long time for a technician. And that can turn extremely unbearable.

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

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

Can I Complete Service on My Own?

There are methods that you can do to help keep your AC unit in the ultimate order:

  • Put in a new air filter. Clogged filters restrict airflow and could reduce your unit’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the type of filter you install, 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 by the outside condenser. Make sure there’s no grass, weeds or bushes close to your cooling system. We recommend keeping 2–3 feet of free room. You should also remove any leaves or sticks that have collected inside your equipment, because this could impede airflow.
