As warmer weather starts, you could be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Ames? Even if your air conditioning unit is up-to-date or was running well last season.

Here’s one approach to look at it. You wouldn’t buy a brand-new vehicle and never expect to request any work for it, such as putting in fresh oil or getting new tires.

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

Having your equipment checked seasonally by a Haselhoff Air Solutions tech can help spot minor issues before they turn into large breakdowns. (And cause your AC to stop working!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your AC is installed outdoors, it’s more inclined to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can negatively affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to service delicate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your AC efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate within your unit can make it work harder and restrict airflow. Both these troubles can lead to higher energy consumption—and a more expensive utility bill!
  3. It could prolong your system’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and could even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly electricity costs and over the years, because you won’t have to buy new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps locate little problems before they turn into big, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will carefully examine components and complete a cycle of AC performance checks. These detailed procedures often allow us to identify issues before they turn into major troubles that result in a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free cooling throughout the warmest days. After your unit is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your system is ready to provide worry-free air. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the smartest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty valid. Most manufacturers call for regular maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this work, your equipment is open to early breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
