As spring begins, you could be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Lancaster? Particularly if your AC system is up-to-date or was running good last year.

Here’s one way to look at it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new automobile and never have to request any service for it, such as putting in fresh oil or putting on new tires.

The same is applicable to your air conditioner. It’s equipment that consumes fuel and has moving components. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving parts can break down.

Having your equipment checked annually by a Fairfield Heating & Cooling technician can help spot little issues before they lead to large breakdowns. (And cause your equipment to stop working!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your cooling system is installed outdoors, it’s more vulnerable to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can majorly affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to service delicate internal components.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate in your unit can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these problems can lead to higher energy use—and a bigger utility bill!
  3. It could extend your unit’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and might even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly electricity costs and over the years, since you won’t have to install new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps locate little issues before they become big, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will carefully examine components and complete a cycle of air conditioning performance checks. These detailed procedures often allow us to locate troubles before they turn into large troubles that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free cooling throughout the season. After your AC is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your system is ready to deliver worry-free air. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the smartest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers expect regular maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this tune-up, your equipment is open to early breakdowns and limited efficiency.
