Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As spring starts, you could be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Ontario? Particularly if your AC system is recently purchased or was working just fine last year.

Here’s one way to look at it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new car and never have to schedule any maintenance for it, such as getting new oil or purchasing new tires.

The same affects your air conditioner. It’s a machine that uses fuel and has moving pieces. Like a car, it can end up with leaks and its moving components can fail.

Having your unit examined yearly by a Stan's Heating, Inc professional can help locate small problems before they lead to huge breakdowns. (And cause your system to stop running!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your air conditioner is located outside your home, it’s more susceptible to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can greatly decrease your system’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, you should call an expert to take care of complicated internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard debris that collect within your system can make it work harder and restrict airflow. Both these issues can cause higher energy needs—and a higher utility bill!
  3. It could extend your system’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and may even help it work longer. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly energy expenses and over the years, as you won’t have to buy new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps spot minor problems before they lead to large, pricey troubles. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will closely examine parts and complete a set of AC performance verifications. These in-depth processes often allow us to identify troubles before they create major issues that cause a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee stress-free comfort throughout the summer. After your system is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your equipment is ready to give worry-free air. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the smartest ways to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this service, your equipment is at risk for premature breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
