As warmer weather rolls around, you might be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Lexington? Particularly if your AC system is newer or was running just fine last year.

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

The same affects your air conditioning. It’s equipment that consumes fuel and has moving pieces. Like a car, it can get leaks and its moving parts can malfunction.

Having your equipment checked annually by a James Heating & A/C, Inc tech can help spot little issues before they turn into large malfunctions. (And cause your AC to stop working!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your cooling system is located outdoors, it’s more susceptible to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can majorly affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to service delicate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate inside your system can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these problems can create higher energy consumption—and a more expensive energy bill!
  3. It could prolong your system’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and may even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly energy costs and over the years, since you won’t have to buy new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps determine little troubles before they become big, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will keenly examine components and complete a series of air conditioning performance checks. These detailed procedures often allow us to locate issues before they turn into major problems that result in a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee worry-free cooling throughout the summer. After your equipment is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your system is ready to provide worry-free comfort. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the wisest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty valid. Most manufacturers call for regular maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this maintenance, your unit is open to early breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
