Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Booking yearly AC maintenance is useful.

Service keeps your AC unit 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 call the Experts, like the ones at Peachtree Service Experts, for AC checks and upkeep.

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

Get Your AC Service Booked

Spring is a season of rejuvenation, and to many that involves a big dose of house, garage and yard freshening. With the toastier temps approaching, it’s also a good idea to add AC upkeep on that list.

Spring is a great time of year to get your cooling system cleaned and examined. Waiting to switch it on until the first hot day of the year can be a gamble. If you have to schedule repair or installation, you might be waiting awhile for a tech. And that can become awfully uncomfortable.

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

Additionally, AC service could be mandatory for your system’s manufacturer warranty or any other extended warranty.

Can I Finish Maintenance Myself?

There are methods that you can complete to help keep your air conditioner equipment in the top state:

  • Put in a new air filter. Dirty filters limit airflow and can decrease your equipment’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the model you have, the U.S. Department of Energy suggests each month or two. This is particularly important if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have pets in your house.
  • Lawn maintenance around the outdoor condenser. Check there’s not any grass, weeds or bushes near your AC equipment. We suggest keeping 2–3 feet of clear space. You should also clear any leaves or branches that have dropped into your unit, because this might impede airflow.

Let the Professionals Take Care of the Rest

  • Aligning coil fins to stop decreased airflow.
