As spring begins, you could be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Marshalltown? Especially if your air conditioning system is newer or was running well last season.

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

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

Having your equipment checked annually by a Kapaun & Brown tech can help spot little issues before they turn into large meltdowns. (And cause your system to stop working!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your air conditioner is installed outdoors, it’s more prone to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can greatly affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to service complicated internal parts.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate within your system can make it work harder and restrict airflow. Both these troubles can create higher energy consumption—and a more expensive cooling bill!
  3. It could lengthen your system’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and might even help it run for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, because you won’t have to replace your equipment as fast.
  4. It helps find little issues before they turn into big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will closely examine parts and complete a cycle of AC performance verifications. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to identify issues before they turn into major issues that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free cooling throughout the warmest days. After your AC is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your unit is ready to deliver 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 valid. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this work, your unit is open to premature breakdowns and limited efficiency.
