As spring starts, you may be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Buellton? Especially if your air conditioning system is up-to-date or was running just fine last year.

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

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

Having your system checked annually by a Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning expert can help spot minor 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 equipment clean. Since your air conditioner is located outdoors, it’s more vulnerable to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can negatively affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to service complicated internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate within your system can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these issues can create higher energy needs—and a bigger energy bill!
  3. It could extend your unit’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and could even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, because you won’t have to install new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps pinpoint little problems before they become big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will carefully examine components and complete a cycle of air conditioning performance verifications. These detailed procedures often allow us to identify troubles before they turn into big issues that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free cooling throughout the summer. After your system is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your equipment is ready to provide worry-free comfort. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the smartest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this work, your system is open to premature breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
