As springtime begins, you may be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Oxford? Especially if your AC unit is recently purchased or was running good last year.

Here’s one way to look at it. You wouldn’t purchase a brand-new automobile and never expect to request any maintenance for it, such as putting in fresh oil or purchasing new tires.

The same is applicable to your AC. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving pieces. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving components can wear out.

Having your equipment checked seasonally by a Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc technician can help spot small issues before they lead to large malfunctions. (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 cooling system 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 use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a specialist to service complicated internal parts.
  2. It keeps your AC efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate inside your unit can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these issues can cause higher energy use—and a bigger cooling bill!
  3. It could prolong your equipment’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and may even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, as you won’t have to get new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps spot little problems before they lead to big, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will carefully examine parts and complete a cycle of AC performance checks. These in-depth procedures often allow us to find issues before they turn into big problems that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free cooling throughout the season. After your system is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your equipment is ready to deliver worry-free cooling. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the best 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 valid. Without this work, your equipment is open to early breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
