Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?

As springtime starts, you may be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in St. Louis? Especially if your AC equipment is up-to-date or was operating good last year.

Here’s one way to contemplate it. You wouldn’t purchase a brand-new vehicle and never anticipate 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 unit examined annually by a Morgner Inc. Air Conditioning & Heating specialist can help locate little problems before they turn into large breakdowns. (And cause your AC to stop working!)

6 Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system 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 impact your unit’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, you should call a pro to take care of intricate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your AC efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that collect in your equipment can push it to work harder and lower airflow. Both these troubles can cause elevated energy needs—and a bigger cooling bill!
  3. It could extend your equipment’s life span. A clean air conditioner is an efficient one and could even help it work longer. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly energy expenses and in the long-term, because you won’t have to get new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps determine little problems before they lead to large, pricey issues. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will keenly inspect pieces and complete a set of air conditioning performance checks. These in-depth procedures often allow us to locate issues before they create big troubles that lead to a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free operation throughout the summer. After your air conditioner is maintained, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your equipment is ready to give worry-free comfort. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the smartest approaches to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers require yearly maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this tune-up, your equipment is vulnerable to premature meltdowns and decreased efficiency.
