Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Scheduling regular AC maintenance is worth the effort.

Tune-ups keep your AC system in Haltom City running at peak performance while keeping electricity needs down. It also might even help prolong its life expectancy.

While there are a couple tasks you can finish by yourself, you should hire Experts, like the ones at Stark Services, for AC inspections and service.

Here are a few steps you can complete alone as you get ready for warm weather.

Get Your AC Maintenance Set

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

Spring is a great time to get your cooling equipment scrubbed and checked out. Waiting to switch it on until the first hot day of the season can be dicey. If you have to schedule service or a new unit, you could be waiting awhile for a technician. And that could become very uncomfortable.

And for those with allergies, being well prepared with a freshened AC system will help provide the finest 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 Alone?

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

  • Change your air filter. Filthy filters restrict airflow and can decrease your equipment’s efficiency. While replacement frequency depends on the type of filter you install, the U.S. Department of Energy advises each month or two. This is particularly necessary if you suffer from allergies or have a dog in your house.
  • Lawn maintenance around the exterior condenser. Check the area is free of grass, weeds or bushes near your air conditioning system. We suggest keeping 2–3 feet of clear room. You should also remove any leaves or sticks that have dropped into your equipment, because this can limit airflow.
