Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As spring starts, you could be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Bossier City? Even if your AC equipment is recently purchased or was working just fine last year.

Here’s one method to look at it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new car and never expect to schedule any service for it, such as changing the oil or buying new tires.

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

Having your equipment inspected seasonally by a Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning professional can help spot minor problems before they become huge meltdowns. (And cause your equipment to stop operating!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your cooling system is installed outdoors, it’s more inclined to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can majorly impact your system’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we suggest calling a professional to take care of complicated internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your AC efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that collect in your system can make it work harder and restrict airflow. Both these problems can create higher energy consumption—and a bigger cooling bill!
  3. It could extend your system’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and may even help it last longer. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly electricity costs and in the long-term, as you won’t have to buy new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps pinpoint little problems before they become large, pricey issues. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will carefully examine pieces and carry out a series of AC performance verifications. These all-inclusive processes often allow us to find problems before they turn into large problems that cause a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure stress-free operation throughout the summer. After your AC is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your system is well-prepared to give worry-free comfort. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the best methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers call for seasonal maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this service, your equipment is vulnerable to early meltdowns and decreased efficiency.
