Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Scheduling regular AC maintenance is worthwhile.

Maintenance keeps your air conditioning equipment in Charleston running at its top performance while keeping electricity usage down. It also might even help prolong its life span.

While there are several jobs you can finish by yourself, you should hire Experts, like the ones at Pardee Service Experts, for AC checks and upkeep.

Here are several steps you can do alone as you prepare for warm weather.

Get Your AC Service Set

Spring is a season of rejuvenation, and to many that entails a hefty portion of house, garage and yard sprucing. With the toastier weather near, it’s also a good idea to include AC checkups on that checklist.

Spring is the best time to get your cooling system freshened and examined. Delaying to flip it on until the first sweltering day of the season can be risky. If you have to have service or replacement, you may be waiting a long time for a technician. And that may become awfully unbearable.

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

Also, air conditioning upkeep could be required for your system’s manufacturer warranty or any extra extended warranty.

Can I Complete Service Myself?

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

  • Replace your air filter. Dirty filters limit airflow and may lower your equipment’s efficiency. While replacement frequency depends on the kind you have, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends each month or two. This is particularly crucial if you deal with allergies or have pets in your house.
  • Lawn upkeep by the exterior condenser. Ensure the area is free of grass, weeds or bushes close to your cooling system. We suggest keeping 2–3 feet of free space. You should also get rid of any leaves or sticks that have collected inside your system, as this could impede airflow.
