Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Booking regular AC maintenance is worthwhile.

Service keeps your AC unit in La Porte running at peak performance while keeping electricity needs low. It also can even help extend its life span.

While there are several jobs you can do alone, you should hire Experts, like the ones at Finch Air Conditioning & Heating, for AC checks and service.

Here are several steps you can take alone as you prepare for summer.

Get Your AC Checkup Scheduled

Spring is a season of renewal, and to many that entails a hefty dose of home, garage and yard freshening. With the warmer temperatures approaching, it’s also a fantastic idea to add AC service on that list.

Spring is the perfect season to get your air conditioning system freshened and examined. Hesitating to turn it on until the first sweltering day of the season can be risky. If you have to have repair or a new unit, you may be waiting a long time for a tech. And that might turn extremely unbearable.

And for those with allergies, being well prepared with a freshened AC system will help provide the greatest indoor air quality when it’s pollen season.

Plus, air conditioning service might be required for your equipment’s manufacturer warranty or any applicable extended warranty.

Can I Complete a Tune-Up on My Own?

There are procedures that you can take to help keep your AC unit in the prime state:

  • Change your air filter recommends each month or two. This is very important if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have a dog in your home.
  • Lawn maintenance near the outdoor condenser. Ensure the area is free of grass, weeds or bushes by your cooling system. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of free space. You should also clear any leaves or sticks that have collected inside your system, since this can block airflow.

Let the Experts Take Care of the Rest
