As warmer weather begins, you may be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Libertyville? Especially if your AC unit is recently purchased or was running good last summer.

Here’s one approach to look at it. You wouldn’t purchase a brand-new car and never expect to request any work for it, such as putting in fresh oil or purchasing new tires.

The same applies for your air conditioning. It’s equipment that consumes fuel and has moving pieces. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving components can fail.

Having your unit checked yearly by a TopTec tech can help spot minor issues before they become large malfunctions. (And cause your unit to stop running!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your AC is installed outdoors, it’s more prone to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can greatly affect your system’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to service intricate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate within your equipment can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these issues can create higher energy needs—and a bigger energy bill!
  3. It could lengthen your unit’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and might even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, as you won’t have to get new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps determine little issues before they lead to big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will keenly examine parts and complete a set of air conditioning performance verifications. These detailed procedures often allow us to identify problems before they turn into large issues that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free operation throughout the summer. After your equipment is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your equipment is ready to deliver worry-free comfort. Even on the warmest days. It’s one of the best methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers call for regular maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this tune-up, your equipment is open to premature breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
