As warmer weather starts, you could be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Lawrence? Particularly if your air conditioning equipment is newer or was running good last season.

Here’s one way 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 is applicable to your air conditioning. It’s equipment that uses fuel and has moving pieces. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving components can fail.

Having your unit checked annually by a Scott Temperature technician can help spot minor issues before they lead to large meltdowns. (And cause your system to stop running!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your air conditioner is located outdoors, it’s more prone to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can negatively affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to service intricate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate inside your equipment can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these issues can lead to higher energy consumption—and a more expensive energy bill!
  3. It could lengthen your equipment’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and could even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, because you won’t have to buy new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps find little problems before they become big, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will carefully examine components and complete a series of AC performance checks. These in-depth procedures often allow us to find troubles before they turn into major issues that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free operation throughout the warmest days. After your equipment is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your equipment is ready to give worry-free air. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the wisest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty valid. Most manufacturers call for regular maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this maintenance, your equipment is open to premature breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
