As springtime begins, you might be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Michigan City? Particularly if your air conditioning unit is recently installed or was running well last summer.

Here’s one approach to look at it. You wouldn’t purchase a brand-new car and never anticipate to request any work for it, such as putting in fresh oil or purchasing new tires.

The same is applicable to your air conditioning. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving parts. Like a car, it can get leaks and its moving components can fail.

Having your equipment checked seasonally by a Paniccia Heating & Cooling tech can help spot little issues before they lead to large meltdowns. (And cause your AC to stop operating!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your cooling system is installed outdoors, it’s more prone to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can majorly affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a specialist to service complicated internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate inside your equipment can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these problems can lead to higher energy consumption—and a more expensive utility bill!
  3. It could lengthen your unit’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and may even help it run for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly electricity costs and over the years, as you won’t have to replace your equipment as soon.
  4. It helps spot little problems before they become big, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will closely examine pieces and complete a series of AC performance checks. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to find troubles before they turn into extensive troubles that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free cooling throughout the season. After your equipment is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your equipment is ready to deliver worry-free air. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the wisest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this tune-up, your equipment is open to early breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
