The Benefits of a Spring AC Tune-Up

Now that spring is here, people will use their air-conditioners more often because of the rising temperatures. Like all equipment, your AC requires a maintenance check, especially during this time. That’s because although you didn’t use your AC during winter, it was still exposed to snow, ice, and debris that could cause damage to it. A spring AC tune-up can take care of any necessary maintenance to use it properly when you need it.

Don’t wait for a severe heatwave to hit your area before you consider having your AC system checked. Here are a few more benefits that you can experience when you get your AC inspected:

Reduces the Risk of a Breakdown

A modern air-conditioner is usually built to last for 12 to 15 years. When temperatures are high outside, your unit is under too much strain. Eventually, its interior parts can wear out and cause a system failure.

A tune-up can help you spot any internal issues that your AC has and that you may not be able to notice easily. Plus, preventive maintenance can extend the life of your unit because it can allow the air-conditioner to maintain its top performance.

Increases the Unit’s Energy Efficiency

Often, the maintenance process involves inspecting and cleaning out the blades of your unit, cooling coils, and other important internal parts. Besides prolonging your unit’s lifespan, a tune-up can also increase its energy efficiency.

A well-maintained air-conditioner will work as it should while using less energy. This can lower your overall power consumption and monthly electric bill, saving you money in the long run.

Improves Air Quality

Air-conditioners work by sucking the available warm air inside your room and pumping it outside while circulating the cool air to reduce the internal temperature. That makes air quality an important consideration when it comes to AC units.

Poor air quality can lead to various illnesses like “sick building syndrome,” a condition thought to be caused by prolonged exposure while in an enclosed space. When your air-conditioner is used, it can pick up pollutants and contaminants such as mold. Having your unit maintained from time to time helps keep it clean and improve your overall air quality.

An air-conditioning repair and maintenance from time to time can go a long way in keeping your AC functioning well. If you need help with your unit, contact A Plus Air Conditioning & Refrigeration in Gainesville today. Our professional staff can help you with whatever issues your AC unit has.
