As spring starts, you might be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Cottonwood & Prescott? Particularly if your AC system is newer or was running good last year.

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

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

Having your system checked yearly by a Connolly Electric & Mechanical tech can help spot small issues before they turn into large meltdowns. (And cause your unit to stop working!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your cooling system is placed outdoors, it’s more vulnerable to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can majorly affect your system’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to service delicate internal components.
  2. It keeps your AC efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate inside your unit can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these problems can lead to higher energy use—and a higher energy bill!
  3. It could prolong your equipment’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and may even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, since you won’t have to get new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps identify little issues before they become big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will closely examine components and complete a set of air conditioning performance checks. These in-depth procedures often allow us to identify problems before they turn into major troubles that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free operation throughout the season. After your air conditioner is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your system is ready to give worry-free comfort. Even on the warmest days. It’s one of the smartest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers call for regular maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this work, your equipment is open to early breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
