Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As spring starts, you might be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Tuscaloosa? Even if your air conditioning system is recently installed or was cooling good last year.

Here’s one approach to think about it. You wouldn’t purchase a brand-new automobile and never expect to book any service for it, such as changing the oil or putting on new tires.

The same applies for your AC. It’s equipment that uses fuel and has moving pieces. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving parts can fail.

Having your equipment examined seasonally by a KDM Service Corporation technician can help spot minor issues before they lead to huge malfunctions. (And cause your equipment to stop operating!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your cooling system is placed outside your home, it’s more vulnerable to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can greatly affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, you should call a professional to maintain complicated internal components.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate in your system can force it to work harder and restrict airflow. Both these troubles can cause higher energy use—and a bigger cooling bill!
  3. It could prolong your system’s life span. A clean air conditioner is an efficient one and might even help it run for a greater period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly electricity expenses and over the long run, because you won’t have to replace your equipment as fast.
  4. It helps pinpoint minor troubles before they become major, pricey troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will closely inspect parts and carry out a cycle of cooling performance verifications. These in-depth procedures often allow us to find troubles before they create big troubles that lead to a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free cooling throughout the season. After your AC is tuned up, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your system is well-prepared to provide worry-free cooling. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the wisest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty valid. Most manufacturers require seasonal maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this tune-up, your equipment is at risk for early failure and lowered efficiency.
