Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As spring begins, you may be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in St. Louis? Especially if your AC unit is up-to-date or was operating good last year.

Here’s one way to look at it. You wouldn’t purchase a brand-new vehicle and never have to request any maintenance for it, such as changing the oil or getting new tires.

The same is applicable to your AC. It’s a machine that uses fuel and has moving pieces. Like a vehicle, it can end up with leaks and its moving parts can wear out.

Having your equipment examined annually by a Morgner Inc. Air Conditioning & Heating specialist can help spot little problems before they turn into huge breakdowns. (And cause your AC to stop working!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your air conditioner is located outside, it’s more vulnerable to experiencing a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can majorly lower your equipment’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, you should call a pro to take care of complicated internal components.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate in your equipment can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these troubles can cause higher energy use—and a bigger cooling bill!
  3. It could extend your equipment’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and might even help it work longer. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly energy costs and in the long-term, because you won’t have to get new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps pinpoint minor problems before they lead to large, costly issues. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will carefully inspect pieces and complete a cycle of air conditioning performance checks. These in-depth measures often allow us to locate issues before they create extensive issues that lead to a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure stress-free operation throughout the summer. After your air conditioner is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your equipment is ready to give worry-free comfort. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the smartest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers require annual maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this tune-up, your equipment is vulnerable to premature breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
