Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Booking yearly AC maintenance is helpful.

Maintenance keeps your air conditioner system in Saint Charles running at its top performance while keeping energy needs small. It also can even help extend its life expectancy.

While there are a couple things you can do on your own, you should hire Experts, like the ones at Golden Seal Service Experts, for AC inspections and upkeep.

Here are several steps you can take on your own as you get ready for summer.

Get Your AC Tune-Up Scheduled

Spring is a time of revival, and to many that entails a hefty amount of home, garage and yard cleaning. With the hotter temperatures right around the corner, it’s also a good idea to put AC maintenance on that checklist.

Spring is a great time of year to get your AC equipment freshened and inspected. Hesitating to flip it on until the first hot day of the summer can be risky. If you have to schedule a fix or replacement, you may be waiting a long time for an appointment. And that might turn awfully unpleasant.

And for those with allergies, being well prepared with a clean air conditioning system will help assure the finest indoor air quality when it’s pollen season.

Additionally, cooling service may be a requirement for your unit’s manufacturer warranty or any additional extended warranty.

Can I Finish Service Alone?

There are steps that you can take to help keep your air conditioner equipment in the prime state:

  • Change your air filter. Clogged filters block airflow and could decrease your equipment’s efficiency. While the replacement timeline depends on the type of filter you use, the U.S. Department of Energy suggests each month or two. This is particularly crucial if you deal with allergies or have pets in your home.
  • Lawn work around the outdoor condenser. Make sure there’s not any grass, weeds or bushes near your air conditioning equipment. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of open area. You should also clear any leaves or branches that have fallen into your system, as this might impede airflow.

Let the Professionals Handle the Rest

  • Adjusting electrical connections to provide safe operation.

  • Flushing the condensate drain line to clear leak-inducing mold and obstructions.
  • Straightening coil fins to stop reduced airflow.
  • Cleansing the outside coil to remove any accumulation from dust and grass.
  • Checking controls to ensure your system is switching on, operating and shutting down properly.
  • Assessing the operating temperature parameters to establish your system has the proper refrigeration charge.
