As warmer weather rolls around, you may be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Lexington? Particularly if your air conditioning unit is newer or was running well last year.

Here’s one method to look at it. You wouldn’t purchase a brand-new car and never anticipate to request any service for it, such as putting in fresh oil or purchasing new tires.

The same affects your AC. It’s equipment that consumes fuel and has moving components. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving parts can malfunction.

Having your system checked seasonally by a James Heating & A/C, Inc technician can help spot little issues before they turn into large breakdowns. (And cause your AC to stop running!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your air conditioner is installed outdoors, it’s more inclined to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can majorly affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to service delicate internal components.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate inside your equipment can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these troubles can create higher energy use—and a bigger energy bill!
  3. It could lengthen your system’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 get new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps identify little troubles before they become big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will keenly examine pieces and complete a series of AC performance verifications. These detailed procedures often allow us to locate problems before they turn into large troubles that result in a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free comfort throughout the warmest days. After your air conditioner is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your unit is ready to give worry-free comfort. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the wisest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers expect regular maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this tune-up, your equipment is open to premature breakdowns and limited efficiency.
