Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning routine AC maintenance is useful.

Tune-ups keep your air conditioner unit in Shreveport running at peak performance while keeping utility needs small. It also can even help lengthen its life cycle.

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

Here are several steps you can take alone as you get ready for warm weather.

Get Your AC Service Set

Spring is a season of revival, and to many that involves a large portion of home, garage and yard freshening. With the warmer weather right around the corner, it’s also a great idea to add AC service on that checklist.

Spring is a great season to get your cooling system freshened and inspected. Delaying to flip it on until the first hot day of the season can be a gamble. If you need a fix or installation, you could be waiting a long time for an appointment. And that may become awfully unbearable.

And for those with allergies, being one step ahead with a fresh AC system will help assure the finest indoor air quality when it’s pollen season.

Additionally, air conditioner upkeep might be mandatory for your equipment’s manufacturer warranty or any additional extended warranty.

Can I Do Maintenance Myself?

There are procedures that you can take to help keep your air conditioning system in the ultimate order:

  • Replace your air filter. Dirty filters block airflow and may decrease 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 particularly important if you suffer from allergies or have a cat in your residence.
  • Lawn work by the outdoor condenser. Check there’s no grass, weeds or bushes close to your cooling equipment. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of open area. You should also get rid of any leaves or branches that have dropped into your system, since this might impede airflow.

Let the Experts Take Care of the Rest
