Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning regular AC maintenance is worth the effort.

Checkups keep your air conditioning system in Dallas working at its best performance while keeping utility usage small. It also could even help prolong its life span.

While there are several things you can finish alone, you should hire Experts, like the ones at Levy & Son Service Experts, for AC inspections and maintenance.

Here are a couple steps you can do on your own as you prep for summer.

Get Your AC Service Scheduled

Spring is a time of rejuvenation, and to many that entails a hefty amount of house, garage and yard freshening. With the hotter weather right around the corner, it’s also a great idea to add AC service on that checklist.

Spring is the perfect season to get your air conditioning unit scrubbed and inspected. Delaying to turn it on until the first warm day of the summer can be risky. If you have to have repair or replacement, you may be waiting days for a technician. And that might turn awfully uncomfortable.

And for people with allergies, being ahead of the game with a freshened cooling system will help provide the finest indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.

Additionally, air conditioning service may be required for your unit’s manufacturer warranty or any other extended warranty.

Can I Do a Tune-Up on My Own?

There are procedures that you can complete to help keep your AC system in the prime state:

  • Replace your air filter. Clogged filters block airflow and could reduce your equipment’s efficiency. While replacement frequency depends on the kind you have, the U.S. Department of Energy suggests each month or two. This is particularly important if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have a cat in your house.
  • Lawn work near the outside condenser. Ensure the area is free of grass, weeds or bushes by your AC equipment. We recommend keeping 2–3 feet of open space. You should also remove any leaves or twigs that have dropped into your system, because this may block airflow.

Let the Experts Take Care of the Rest
