As springtime begins, you could be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Bloomfield? Particularly if your cooling unit is recently installed or was running just fine last year.

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

The same applies for your air conditioner. It’s equipment that consumes fuel and has moving components. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving components can malfunction.

Having your system checked annually by a Stanford Heating & Cooling specialist can help spot small issues before they turn into large malfunctions. (And cause your unit to stop running!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your cooling system is placed outdoors, it’s more susceptible to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can negatively affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling an expert to service delicate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your AC efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate inside your equipment can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these troubles can cause higher energy use—and a higher utility bill!
  3. It could prolong your system’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and may even help it run for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly electricity costs and over the years, as you won’t have to get new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps find little problems before they lead to big, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will closely examine parts and complete a series of cooling performance tests. These detailed procedures often allow us to locate problems before they turn into major troubles that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free operation throughout the summer. After your system is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your unit is ready to give worry-free cooling. Even on the muggiest 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 in place. Without this service, your equipment is open to advanced breakdowns and limited efficiency.
