As spring starts, you may be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Moline? Particularly if your AC unit is newer or was running just fine last season.

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

The same is applicable to your air conditioner. It’s equipment that consumes fuel and has moving components. Like a car, it can get leaks and its moving parts can break down.

Having your unit checked annually by a Freed Heating & Air Conditioning technician can help spot little issues before they turn into large malfunctions. (And cause your equipment to stop working!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your AC is placed outdoors, it’s more vulnerable to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can greatly affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to service intricate internal components.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate within your equipment can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these problems can create higher energy needs—and a more expensive energy bill!
  3. It could prolong your system’s life span. A clean air conditioner is an efficient one and could even help it run for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly electricity costs and over the years, because you won’t have to install new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps pinpoint little problems before they lead to big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will carefully examine components and complete a series of cooling performance tests. These in-depth procedures often allow us to identify problems before they turn into big issues that result in a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee worry-free comfort throughout the season. After your system is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your system is ready to give worry-free cooling. Even on the warmest days. It’s one of the best methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers expect regular maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this work, your equipment is open to advanced breakdowns and limited efficiency.
