Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

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

Here’s one way to contemplate it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new car and never have to schedule any maintenance for it, such as putting in fresh oil or putting on new tires.

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

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

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your cooling system is located outdoors, it’s more susceptible to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can greatly decrease your system’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, you should call an expert to take care of intricate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that collect within your system can push it to work harder and restrict airflow. Both these issues can cause elevated energy use—and a higher cooling bill!
  3. It could extend your system’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and may even help it run longer. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly energy costs and over the long run, because you won’t have to buy new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps find 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 tests. These in-depth processes often allow us to identify problems before they create major troubles that result in a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free cooling throughout the summer. After your system is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your unit is ready to give worry-free comfort. 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 maintenance, your equipment is at risk for premature meltdowns and lowered efficiency.
