As springtime begins, you could be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Shamokin and Sunbury? Especially if your cooling unit is up-to-date or was running well last season.

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

The same affects your AC. It’s equipment that uses fuel and has moving parts. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving pieces can fail.

Having your system checked yearly by a LTS Plumbing & Heating Inc. professional can help spot minor issues before they lead to large meltdowns. (And cause your AC to stop operating!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your AC is located outdoors, it’s more inclined to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can greatly affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a specialist to service delicate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate within your system can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these issues can create higher energy consumption—and a higher utility bill!
  3. It could lengthen your equipment’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and might even help it run for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, since you won’t have to install new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps identify little troubles before they lead to big, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will keenly examine components and complete a set of cooling performance verifications. These detailed procedures often allow us to locate problems before they turn into major issues that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free cooling throughout the warmest days. After your equipment is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your unit is ready to provide worry-free air. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the smartest methods 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 work, your unit is open to premature breakdowns and limited efficiency.
