Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As warmer weather begins, you may be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Phoenix? Particularly if your cooling unit is newer or was working well last season.

Here’s one way to look at it. You wouldn’t get a brand-new car and never expect to book any service for it, such as getting new oil or putting on new tires.

The same is applicable to your AC. It’s a machine that consumes fuel and has moving parts. Like a car, it can develop leaks and its moving pieces can break down.

Having your equipment inspected yearly by a Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc technician can help find little problems before they turn into huge breakdowns. (And cause your air conditioning to stop working!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your air conditioner is placed outdoors, it’s more prone to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can greatly decrease your equipment’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we suggest calling a pro to service intricate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard debris that collect within your equipment can force it to work harder and decrease airflow. Both these issues can create higher energy use—and a bigger cooling bill!
  3. It could prolong your unit’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and may even help it work for a greater period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly energy expenses and over the years, as you won’t have to replace your equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps find little troubles before they lead to major, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will carefully inspect components and carry out a set of AC performance tests. These detailed processes often allow us to locate troubles before they lead to extensive problems that lead to an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee trouble-free comfort throughout the summer. After your system is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your system is well-prepared to deliver worry-free air. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the best approaches to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers require yearly maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this service, your equipment is vulnerable to advanced breakdowns and limited efficiency.
