Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Scheduling routine AC maintenance is worthwhile.

Tune-ups keep your air conditioning equipment in Winnipeg working at peak performance while keeping electricity usage down. It also may even help prolong its life expectancy.

While there are a few tasks you can do by yourself, you should work with Experts, like the ones at Winnipeg Supply Service Experts, for AC checks and upkeep.

Here are several steps you can do alone as you prepare for summer.

Get Your AC Maintenance Set

Spring is a time of rejuvenation, and to many that entails a hefty portion of home, garage and yard sprucing. With the warmer weather near, it’s also a fantastic idea to add AC maintenance on that list.

Spring is the perfect season to get your air conditioning unit cleaned and examined. Waiting to turn it on until the first hot day of the year can be dicey. If you need a fix or installation, you could be waiting days for a tech. And that can become very uncomfortable.

And for people with allergies, being ahead of the game with a fresh AC system will help ensure the finest indoor air quality when it’s pollen season.

Additionally, air conditioning maintenance can be mandatory for your system’s manufacturer warranty or any other extended warranty.

Can I Do Service on My Own?

There are procedures that you can take to help keep your air conditioner equipment in the best state:

  • Change your air filter. Filthy filters restrict airflow and could lower your system’s efficiency. While the replacement timeline depends on the type of filter you use, the U.S. Department of Energy suggests each month or two. This is particularly important if you deal with allergies or have a dog in your house.
  • Lawn upkeep around the outside condenser. Ensure the area is free of grass, weeds or bushes near your cooling system. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of free room. You should also clear any leaves or sticks that have dropped into your system, because this can block airflow.
