As spring rolls around, you could be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Bend? Especially if your AC unit is newer or was running just fine last summer.

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

The same applies for your air conditioner. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving components. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving components can malfunction.

Having your unit checked seasonally by a Tri County Climate Control LLC specialist can help spot minor issues before they turn into large breakdowns. (And cause your equipment to stop operating!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your AC is installed outdoors, it’s more susceptible to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can majorly affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a specialist to service complicated internal parts.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate within your system can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these problems can create higher energy needs—and a bigger utility bill!
  3. It could lengthen your system’s life span. A clean unit 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 install new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps spot little issues before they turn into big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will carefully examine components and complete a cycle of air conditioning performance tests. These in-depth procedures often allow us to locate problems before they turn into major problems that result in a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee worry-free cooling throughout the warmest days. After your system is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your equipment is ready to provide worry-free comfort. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the wisest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers call for regular maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this maintenance, your system is open to premature breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
