As spring starts, you could be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Lake Worth? Even if your cooling unit is recently purchased or was running well last season.

Here’s one method 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 applies for your AC. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving parts. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving pieces can fail.

Having your equipment checked annually by a Smyth Air Conditioning specialist can help spot minor issues before they become large meltdowns. (And cause your equipment to stop working!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your air conditioner is placed outdoors, it’s more vulnerable to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can majorly affect your system’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to service delicate internal components.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate in your unit can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these problems can create higher energy needs—and a bigger energy bill!
  3. It could prolong your system’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and might even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly electricity costs and over the years, since you won’t have to install new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps locate little problems before they turn into big, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will keenly examine parts and complete a cycle of air conditioning performance verifications. These in-depth procedures often allow us to identify problems before they turn into large issues that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free comfort throughout the season. After your AC is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your unit is ready to deliver worry-free comfort. Even on the warmest 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 going. Without this work, your system is open to early breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
