Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning routine AC maintenance is useful.

Checkups keep your air conditioner equipment in Shreveport operating at peak performance while keeping utility consumption small. It also can even help prolong its life expectancy.

While there are several jobs you can finish 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 by yourself as you prep for warm weather.

Get Your AC Service Booked

Spring is a period of rejuvenation, and to many that entails a large amount 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 air conditioning system freshened and examined. Delaying to flip it on until the first hot day of the season can be a gamble. If you need service or installation, you could be waiting days for an appointment. And that could become awfully unbearable.

And for people with allergies, being well prepared with a fresh AC system will help assure the greatest indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.

Additionally, air conditioner service could be required for your unit’s manufacturer warranty or any additional extended warranty.

Can I Do Service Myself?

There are procedures that you can complete to help keep your air conditioning system in the prime state:

  • 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 kind you install, the U.S. Department of Energy advises each month or two. This is very important if you deal with allergies or have a cat in your house.
  • Lawn work by the exterior condenser. Ensure 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 sticks that have dropped into your system, as this can limit airflow.
