As springtime starts, you could be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Manassas? Even if your AC equipment is recently purchased or was running good last year.

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

The same affects your AC. It’s equipment that consumes fuel and has moving parts. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving parts can wear out.

Having your equipment checked yearly by a Air-Right Energy Design pro can help spot little issues before they turn into large meltdowns. (And cause your system to stop operating!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your AC is placed outdoors, it’s more prone to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can negatively affect your system’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to service intricate internal components.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate inside your equipment can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these troubles can lead to higher energy needs—and a higher energy bill!
  3. It could prolong your system’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and may even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly energy costs and over the years, as you won’t have to install new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps locate little troubles before they lead to big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will closely examine parts and complete a cycle of AC performance tests. These detailed procedures often allow us to locate issues before they turn into large problems that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free cooling throughout the summer. After your air conditioner is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your unit is ready to deliver worry-free air. Even on the warmest days. It’s one of the smartest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this work, your equipment is open to premature breakdowns and limited efficiency.
