As spring starts, you may be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Lawrence? Particularly if your air conditioning system is up-to-date or was running well last season.

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

The same is applicable to your AC. It’s equipment that uses fuel and has moving components. Like a car, it can get leaks and its moving components can malfunction.

Having your equipment checked seasonally by a Scott Temperature tech can help spot minor issues before they lead to large meltdowns. (And cause your equipment to stop running!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your AC is installed outdoors, it’s more vulnerable to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can majorly affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling an expert to service intricate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your AC efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate in your system can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these problems can cause higher energy needs—and a bigger energy bill!
  3. It could extend your system’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and may even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly energy costs and over the years, as you won’t have to buy new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps spot little issues before they become big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will closely examine parts and complete a set of air conditioning performance checks. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to identify issues before they turn into big problems that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free operation throughout the warmest days. After your AC is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind knowing 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 maintenance, your system is open to early breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
