As springtime begins, you may be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Wisconsin Rapids? Even if your air conditioning system is newer or was running good last season.

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

The same is applicable to your AC. It’s equipment that consumes fuel and has moving components. Like a automobile, it can get leaks and its moving components can fail.

Having your equipment checked annually by a Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc technician can help spot little issues before they turn into large breakdowns. (And cause your equipment to stop operating!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your cooling system is located outdoors, it’s more vulnerable to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can greatly affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling an expert to service complicated internal components.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate inside your system can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these issues can lead to higher energy use—and a higher cooling bill!
  3. It could extend your system’s life span. A clean air conditioner is an efficient one and might even help it run for a longer period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, because you won’t have to replace your equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps identify little troubles before they lead to big, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will carefully examine pieces and complete a set of AC performance checks. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to find issues before they turn into extensive problems that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee worry-free operation throughout the warmest days. After your unit is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your system is ready to give worry-free cooling. Even on the most humid days. It’s one of the best methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers expect regular maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this service, your unit is open to advanced breakdowns and limited efficiency.
