Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Scheduling regular AC maintenance is helpful.

Checkups keep your AC system in Haltom City running at peak performance while keeping electricity needs small. It also might even help lengthen its life cycle.

While there are several tasks you can complete alone, you should call the Experts, like the ones at Stark Services, for AC inspections and service.

Here are a few steps you can do by yourself as you get ready for warm weather.

Get Your AC Maintenance Set

Spring is a time of revival, and to many that involves a large portion of home, garage and yard cleaning. With the hotter weather near, it’s also a good idea to add AC upkeep on that checklist.

Spring is the best time to get your air conditioning equipment scrubbed and checked out. Waiting to switch it on until the first hot day of the summer can be dicey. If you have to have service or installation, you could be waiting awhile for a technician. And that could become very uncomfortable.

And for people with allergies, being one step ahead with a freshened AC system will help assure the greatest indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.

Additionally, air conditioner upkeep may be a requirement for your system’s manufacturer warranty or any additional extended warranty.

Can I Do Service on My Own?

There are methods that you can complete to help keep your cooling equipment in the top condition:

  • Put in a new air filter. Filthy filters restrict airflow and can decrease your unit’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the type of filter you have, the U.S. Department of Energy advises each month or two. This is particularly crucial if you suffer from allergies or have pets in your residence.
  • Lawn upkeep around the exterior condenser. Check there’s not any grass, weeds or bushes near your cooling system. We suggest keeping 2–3 feet of clear room. You should also remove any leaves or sticks that have collected inside your equipment, because this might limit airflow.

Let the Experts Manage the Rest
