Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Booking regular AC maintenance is worthwhile.

Maintenance keeps your air conditioning unit in Oklahoma City running at its best performance while keeping electricity needs low. It also can even help lengthen its life span.

While there are several things you can finish on your own, you should call the Experts, like the ones at Gordon's Service Experts, for AC inspections and service.

Here are a couple steps you can take by yourself as you get ready for summer.

Get Your AC Maintenance Booked

Spring is a time of rejuvenation, and to many that involves a big portion of indoors, garage and yard cleaning. With the warmer temps right around the corner, it’s also a fantastic idea to put AC upkeep on that list.

Spring is the perfect time to get your cooling unit freshened and checked out. Delaying to turn it on until the first sweltering day of the year can be risky. If you need a fix or installation, you could be waiting days for an appointment. And that could get awfully unbearable.

And for allergy sufferers, being one step ahead with a fresh air conditioning system will help assure the greatest indoor air quality during pollen season.

Additionally, AC service may be mandatory for your unit’s manufacturer warranty or any applicable extended warranty.

Can I Do Maintenance on My Own?

There are steps that you can complete to help keep your cooling system in the prime order:

  • Change your air filter. Dirty filters limit airflow and may reduce your system’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the kind you install, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends each month or two. This is especially important if you deal with allergies or have a dog in your home.
  • Lawn work near the exterior condenser. Check there’s no grass, weeds or bushes near your cooling system. We suggest keeping 2–3 feet of clear area. You should also get rid of any leaves or branches that have collected inside your system, since this can limit airflow.
