Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Booking routine AC maintenance is worth the effort.

Maintenance keeps your air conditioning system in Houston running at its best performance while keeping utility consumption down. It also could even help extend its life span.

While there are a few tasks you can do alone, you should hire Experts, like the ones at Church Services, for AC examinations and upkeep.

Here are a couple steps you can do alone as you prep for warm weather.

Get Your AC Service Booked

Spring is a period of rejuvenation, and to many that entails a hefty portion of home, garage and yard freshening. With the hotter weather approaching, it’s also a fantastic idea to include AC tune-ups on that list.

Spring is the perfect season to get your air conditioning equipment scrubbed and inspected. Waiting to switch it on until the first warm day of the year can be a gamble. If you need service or replacement, you could be waiting a long time for a technician. And that may become extremely uncomfortable.

And for those with allergies, being one step ahead with a fresh cooling system will help provide the finest indoor air quality during pollen season.

Also, air conditioning service can be required for your equipment’s manufacturer warranty or any applicable extended warranty.

Can I Do Maintenance Alone?

There are methods that you can do to help keep your AC unit in the best order:

  • Put in a new air filter. Filthy filters limit airflow and could reduce your equipment’s efficiency. While replacement frequency depends on the kind you use, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends each month or two. This is particularly crucial if you deal with allergies or have pets in your residence.
  • Lawn work by the exterior condenser. Make sure there’s not any grass, weeds or bushes near your cooling system. We recommend keeping 2–3 feet of clear area. You should also clear any leaves or branches that have fallen into your equipment, because this could limit airflow.

Let the Pros Manage the Rest

  • Tightening electrical connections to deliver reliable operation.
  • Oiling to keep moving parts working like they should and potentially avoid malfunctions.
  • Cleaning the condensate drain line to remove leak-causing mold and blockages.
  • Straightening coil fins to stay clear of decreased airflow.
  • Freshening the exterior coil to eliminate any buildup from dirt and vegetation.
  • Inspecting controls to make sure your system is starting, cooling and turning off correctly.
  • Analyzing the operating temperature parameters to establish your system has the correct refrigeration charge.
