Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning annual AC maintenance is worthwhile.

Checkups keep your air conditioning system in Tulsa working at its top performance while keeping utility usage low. It also can even help prolong its life span.

While there are a few jobs you can do by yourself, you should work with Experts, like the ones at Jack Nelson Service Experts, for AC examinations and upkeep.

Here are a few steps you can do alone as you prep for cooling season.

Get Your AC Maintenance Scheduled

Spring is a period of renewal, and to many that entails a large portion of indoors, garage and yard freshening. With the hotter weather right around the corner, it’s also a great idea to include AC checkups on that listing.

Spring is the best time of year to get your air conditioning system scrubbed and inspected. Hesitating to switch it on until the first hot day of the year can be dicey. If you need a fix or replacement, you could be waiting awhile for a tech. And that could become awfully uncomfortable.

And for people with allergies, being well prepared with a clean air conditioning system will help assure the finest indoor air quality during pollen season.

Also, air conditioner service can be a requirement for your system’s manufacturer warranty or any additional extended warranty.

Can I Complete Service Myself?

There are methods that you can do to help keep your air conditioner unit in the best state:

  • Change your air filter. Dirty filters limit airflow and may lower your unit’s efficiency. While the replacement timeline depends on the model you install, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends each month or two. This is particularly crucial if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have a dog in your residence.
  • Lawn work around the exterior condenser. Ensure there’s not any grass, weeds or bushes near your cooling unit. We recommend keeping 2–3 feet of open space. You should also get rid of any leaves or twigs that have fallen into your system, as this could impede airflow.
