As spring rolls around, you may be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Norton? Even if your cooling unit is recently purchased or was running just fine last summer.

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

The same is applicable to your AC. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving pieces. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving pieces can fail.

Having your unit checked yearly by a HCE Systems specialist can help spot little issues before they become large breakdowns. (And cause your system to stop working!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your cooling system is located outdoors, it’s more vulnerable to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can negatively affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to service intricate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate inside your system can make it work harder and restrict airflow. Both these issues can create higher energy use—and a more expensive cooling bill!
  3. It could extend your system’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and may even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, since you won’t have to get new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps identify little problems before they become big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will carefully examine parts and complete a set of air conditioning performance checks. These detailed procedures often allow us to find problems before they turn into big issues that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free comfort throughout the warmest days. After your equipment is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your system is ready to deliver 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 in place. Most manufacturers call for regular maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this work, your unit is open to early breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
