Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning annual AC maintenance is helpful.

Checkups keep your air conditioning equipment in Indianapolis operating at peak performance while keeping electricity needs low. It also can even help prolong its life cycle.

While there are a few things you can finish alone, you should hire Experts, like the ones at Broad Ripple Service Experts, for AC examinations and upkeep.

Here are several steps you can take alone as you prep for warm weather.

Get Your AC Checkup Set

Spring is a time of revival, and to many that entails a large portion of indoors, garage and yard sprucing. With the toastier temperatures near, it’s also a fantastic idea to add AC checkups on that listing.

Spring is a great time of year to get your cooling system freshened and inspected. Delaying to turn it on until the first hot day of the summer can be risky. If you have to have a fix or a new unit, you might be waiting days for a technician. And that can become very unbearable.

And for allergy sufferers, being well prepared with a freshened air conditioning system will help ensure the best indoor air quality when it’s pollen season.

Also, cooling upkeep may be a requirement for your system’s manufacturer warranty or any other extended warranty.

Can I Finish Maintenance Myself?

There are procedures that you can take to help keep your air conditioning unit in the best order:

  • Change your air filter. Filthy filters block airflow and might decrease your equipment’s efficiency. While the replacement timeline depends on the type of filter you have, the U.S. Department of Energy advises each month or two. This is very important if you deal with allergies or have a dog in your residence.
  • Lawn work by the exterior condenser. Check there’s not any grass, weeds or bushes near your AC system. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of free area. You should also get rid of any leaves or sticks that have collected inside your equipment, since this may limit airflow.
