Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning regular AC maintenance is worth the effort.

Maintenance keeps your AC equipment in Columbia operating at peak performance while keeping electricity consumption low. It also could even help prolong its life span.

While there are a couple things you can do alone, you should work with Experts, like the ones at Midland Air Service Experts, for AC checks and upkeep.

Here are a few steps you can take alone as you get ready for cooling season.

Get Your AC Maintenance Booked

Spring is a season of renewal, and to many that includes a big dose of house, garage and yard freshening. With the warmer temperatures approaching, it’s also a fantastic idea to add AC maintenance on that listing.

Spring is the perfect time of year to get your cooling system cleaned and checked out. Hesitating to switch it on until the first hot day of the summer can be dicey. If you need repair or installation, you may be waiting a long time for an appointment. And that can get extremely unbearable.

And for those with allergies, being ahead of the game with a clean cooling system will help assure the finest indoor air quality during pollen season.

Also, air conditioning service could be mandatory for your unit’s manufacturer warranty or any other extended warranty.

Can I Finish Service Myself?

There are procedures that you can do to help keep your AC equipment in the prime condition:

  • Change your air filter. Filthy filters limit airflow and could lower your system’s efficiency. While replacement frequency depends on the kind you have, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends each month or two. This is very crucial if you suffer from allergies or have animals in your house.
  • Lawn work near the exterior condenser. Ensure the area is free of grass, weeds or bushes by your AC equipment. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of free room. You should also remove any leaves or branches that have collected inside your system, since this might block airflow.
