Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Scheduling annual AC maintenance is helpful.

Maintenance keeps your air conditioning equipment in Kansas City working at its best performance while keeping utility usage small. It also can even help extend its life span.

While there are a couple jobs you can complete by yourself, you should call the Experts, like the ones at Neal Harris Service Experts, for AC examinations and upkeep.

Here are a few steps you can do alone as you get ready for cooling season.

Get Your AC Maintenance Scheduled

Spring is a period of revival, and to many that includes a hefty portion of indoors, garage and yard sprucing. With the toastier temperatures near, it’s also a fantastic idea to add AC service on that listing.

Spring is the best time of year to get your AC equipment freshened and inspected. Waiting to turn it on until the first warm day of the season can be dicey. If you need service or replacement, you might be waiting a long time for a tech. And that can become very unbearable.

And for those with allergies, being one step ahead with a freshened air conditioning system will help assure the best indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.

Also, air conditioner maintenance may be mandatory for your unit’s manufacturer warranty or any other extended warranty.

Can I Do Maintenance Alone?

There are steps that you can complete to help keep your AC equipment in the top state:

  • Put in a new air filter. Filthy filters restrict airflow and might lower your system’s efficiency. While the replacement timeline depends on the kind you use, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends each month or two. This is particularly crucial if you suffer from allergies or have pets in your house.
  • Lawn maintenance around the exterior condenser. Ensure there’s no grass, weeds or bushes near your cooling system. We suggest keeping 2–3 feet of clear room. You should also clear any leaves or branches that have collected inside your equipment, because this can block airflow.
