As spring begins, you may be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Port Clinton? Even if your air conditioning unit is recently installed or was running just fine last summer.

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

The same affects your air conditioner. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving components. Like a car, it can get leaks and its moving components can break down.

Having your equipment checked annually by a Ohler & Holzhauer Inc. tech can help spot little issues before they lead to large meltdowns. (And cause your air conditioning to stop running!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your cooling system is installed outdoors, it’s more inclined to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can negatively affect your system’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to service delicate internal components.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate inside your unit can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these issues can create higher energy consumption—and a more expensive utility bill!
  3. It could prolong your equipment’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and could 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, because you won’t have to get new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps locate little issues before they turn into big, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will closely examine components and complete a series of cooling performance checks. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to find troubles before they turn into major troubles that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee worry-free comfort throughout the warmest days. After your unit is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your equipment is ready to provide worry-free comfort. Even on the warmest days. It’s one of the best methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers call for regular maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this tune-up, your equipment is open to premature breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
