As warmer weather rolls around, you could be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Buellton? Particularly if your air conditioning system is recently purchased or was running just fine last season.

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

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

Having your equipment checked seasonally by a Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning professional can help spot little issues before they lead to large breakdowns. (And cause your air conditioning to stop operating!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your air conditioner is installed outdoors, it’s more susceptible to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can majorly affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a specialist to service complicated internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate inside your unit can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these issues can lead to higher energy needs—and a bigger cooling bill!
  3. It could prolong your equipment’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and might 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 get new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps spot little troubles before they lead to big, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will carefully examine pieces and complete a cycle of air conditioning performance tests. These in-depth procedures often allow us to locate problems before they turn into extensive problems that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free operation throughout the warmest days. After your system is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your system is ready to deliver worry-free cooling. 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 require regular maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this work, your unit is open to premature breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
