As spring begins, you might be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Ellsworth? Particularly if your cooling unit is recently purchased or was running well last summer.

Here’s one method to look at it. You wouldn’t purchase a brand-new vehicle and never expect to request any maintenance for it, such as putting in fresh oil or buying new tires.

The same affects your AC. It’s equipment that consumes fuel and has moving components. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving components can malfunction.

Having your unit checked annually by a Walter's-Eaton's Electric, Plumbing, Heating & AC pro can help spot little issues before they become large malfunctions. (And cause your equipment to stop operating!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your AC is located outdoors, it’s more inclined to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can majorly affect your system’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to service delicate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate inside your unit can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these issues can cause higher energy needs—and a higher utility bill!
  3. It could lengthen your system’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and may even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly energy costs and over the years, because you won’t have to buy new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps determine little problems before they become big, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will keenly examine components and complete a set of cooling performance tests. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to identify troubles before they turn into big issues that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free comfort throughout the summer. After your equipment is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your system is ready to deliver worry-free air. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the best methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers call for regular maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this tune-up, your equipment is open to early breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
