As springtime rolls around, you could be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Streamwood? Particularly if your AC equipment is up-to-date or was running good last year.

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

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

Having your unit checked yearly by a Pure Comfort Heating and Air Conditioning technician can help spot small issues before they become large malfunctions. (And cause your system to stop working!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your AC is located outdoors, it’s more inclined to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can greatly affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling an expert to service intricate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate inside your system can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these problems can create higher energy consumption—and a more expensive energy bill!
  3. It could extend your system’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and might even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly electricity costs and over the years, because you won’t have to buy new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps locate little problems before they become big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will carefully examine pieces and complete a series of AC performance verifications. These in-depth procedures often allow us to identify problems before they turn into big problems that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee worry-free cooling throughout the season. After your AC is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your system is ready to provide worry-free comfort. Even on the warmest days. It’s one of the wisest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this service, your system is open to early breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
