Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Booking annual AC maintenance is helpful.

Checkups keep your air conditioning system in Tempe working at its best performance while keeping energy usage down. It also can even help extend its life expectancy.

While there are a couple tasks you can complete by yourself, you should hire Experts, like the ones at Orangutan Home Services, for AC examinations and service.

Here are several steps you can complete by yourself as you get ready for cooling season.

Get Your AC Maintenance Scheduled

Spring is a season of rejuvenation, and to many that involves a large portion of house, garage and yard sprucing. With the hotter temperatures approaching, it’s also a good idea to add AC checkups on that listing.

Spring is the perfect time to get your air conditioning equipment freshened and examined. Delaying to switch it on until the first warm day of the season can be risky. If you have to have repair or installation, you may be waiting awhile for an appointment. And that might become very unpleasant.

And for people with allergies, being one step ahead with a clean AC system will help provide the best indoor air quality when it’s pollen season.

Also, air conditioner service can be required for your equipment’s manufacturer warranty or any extra extended warranty.

Can I Complete Maintenance Alone?

There are methods that you can complete to help keep your cooling system in the ultimate state:

  • Change your air filter suggests each month or two. This is particularly crucial if you suffer from allergies or have animals in your house.
  • Lawn maintenance by the exterior condenser. Check the area is free of grass, weeds or bushes near your AC equipment. We recommend keeping 2–3 feet of open space. You should also remove any leaves or sticks that have dropped into your unit, as this could impede airflow.
