Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Booking yearly AC maintenance is useful.

Service keeps your AC equipment in Atlanta running at its top performance while keeping energy usage low. It also can even help extend its life span.

While there are several things you can do by yourself, you should hire Experts, like the ones at Peachtree Service Experts, for AC checks and upkeep.

Here are a couple steps you can take by yourself as you prepare for cooling season.

Get Your AC Service Booked

Spring is a season of revival, and to many that involves a large dose of house, garage and yard sprucing. With the hotter temperatures approaching, it’s also a good idea to add AC maintenance on that list.

Spring is a great season to get your cooling system cleaned and inspected. Waiting to switch it on until the first hot day of the year can be a gamble. If you have to schedule repair or a new unit, you might be waiting awhile for a tech. And that can turn extremely uncomfortable.

And for allergy sufferers, being one step ahead with a clean cooling system will help ensure the finest indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.

Additionally, air conditioning service could be required for your system’s manufacturer warranty or any other extended warranty.

Can I Finish Maintenance Myself?

There are procedures that you can complete to help keep your AC unit in the top state:

  • Change your air filter. Dirty filters limit airflow and can decrease your unit’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the model you install, the U.S. Department of Energy suggests each month or two. This is very important if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have pets in your residence.
  • Lawn maintenance around the exterior condenser. Ensure the area is free of grass, weeds or bushes by your AC system. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of clear space. You should also clear any leaves or sticks that have collected inside your unit, because this can impede airflow.

Let the Pros Take Care of the Rest
