Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As warmer weather begins, you could be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Norton? Especially if your air conditioning equipment is recently installed or was cooling just fine last season.

Here’s one method to contemplate it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new automobile and never have to request any work for it, such as putting in fresh oil or getting new tires.

The same applies for your air conditioner. It’s a machine that needs fuel and has moving parts. Like a automobile, it can end up with leaks and its moving parts can malfunction.

Having your equipment examined yearly by a HCE Systems Inc technician can help find minor issues before they lead to large malfunctions. (And cause your unit to stop operating!)

6 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 inclined to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can negatively lower your unit’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we suggest calling a specialist to service intricate internal components.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that collect inside your equipment can force it to work harder and restrict airflow. Both these troubles can lead to higher energy use—and a bigger energy bill!
  3. It could lengthen your system’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and could even help it run for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly energy costs and in the long-term, since you won’t have to buy new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps spot minor issues before they turn into large, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will keenly look at pieces and carry out a cycle of air conditioning performance tests. These in-depth procedures often allow us to find troubles before they lead to big troubles that cause a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee worry-free comfort throughout the summer. After your air conditioner is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your system is set to deliver worry-free comfort. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the best approaches to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers call for seasonal maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this tune-up, your equipment is open to premature failure and lowered efficiency.
