As springtime begins, you might be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in McKinney and Frisco? Especially if your air conditioning equipment is recently installed or was running good last summer.

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

The same applies for your AC. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving parts. Like a car, it can get leaks and its moving pieces can break down.

Having your system checked seasonally by a Bell Mechanical Services expert can help spot small issues before they lead to large malfunctions. (And cause your air conditioning to stop operating!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your cooling system is located outdoors, it’s more inclined to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can majorly affect your system’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 refuse that accumulate inside your system can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these troubles can create higher energy use—and a more expensive energy bill!
  3. It could lengthen your unit’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and might even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly energy costs and over the years, since you won’t have to install new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps identify little problems before they become big, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will closely examine components and complete a set of AC performance verifications. These detailed procedures often allow us to locate issues before they turn into big issues that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee worry-free operation throughout the summer. After your system is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your equipment is ready to deliver worry-free cooling. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the smartest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this maintenance, your equipment is open to early breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
