As springtime starts, you may be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Port Orchard? Even if your AC equipment is recently purchased or was running just fine last summer.

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

The same is applicable to your air conditioning. It’s equipment that uses fuel and has moving parts. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving pieces can wear out.

Having your equipment checked seasonally by a Air Masters Heating & Cooling specialist can help spot minor issues before they lead to large meltdowns. (And cause your unit 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 vulnerable to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can greatly affect your system’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a specialist to service complicated internal components.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate inside your unit can make it work harder and restrict airflow. Both these problems can create higher energy needs—and a higher energy bill!
  3. It could extend your unit’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and may even help it run for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly electricity costs and over the years, because you won’t have to install new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps locate little problems before they become big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will carefully examine components and complete a cycle of AC performance checks. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to locate problems before they turn into big problems that result in a costly 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 give worry-free comfort. Even on the warmest 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 going. Without this service, your equipment is open to early breakdowns and limited efficiency.
