Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As spring starts, you may be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Robstown? Particularly if your cooling equipment is recently purchased or was operating good last season.

Here’s one approach to contemplate it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new car and never have to schedule any service for it, such as getting new oil or putting on new tires.

The same applies for your AC. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving pieces. Like a car, it can end up with leaks and its moving parts can malfunction.

Having your equipment examined yearly by a McNatt Inc expert can help find small troubles before they lead to huge breakdowns. (And cause your AC to stop running!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your AC is installed outside your home, it’s more vulnerable to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can negatively affect your system’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we suggest calling a specialist to maintain complicated internal components.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard debris that build up in your unit can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these troubles can lead to increased energy consumption—and a higher utility bill!
  3. It could extend your unit’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and may even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly cooling expenses and in the long-term, since you won’t have to replace your equipment as soon.
  4. It helps spot little issues before they turn into major, expensive troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will keenly examine parts and perform a set of cooling performance checks. These detailed procedures often allow us to identify problems before they become big troubles that lead to a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure stress-free operation throughout the summer. After your system is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your system is set to provide worry-free air. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the smartest approaches to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty valid. Most manufacturers call for seasonal maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this work, your system is vulnerable to premature meltdowns and limited efficiency.
