Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning yearly AC maintenance is worth the effort.

Checkups keep your AC unit in Toronto running at peak performance while keeping electricity consumption low. It also can even help extend its life cycle.

While there are several tasks you can complete by yourself, you should call the Experts, like the ones at Service Experts Commercial HVAC, for AC checks and service.

Here are a few steps you can complete alone as you prep for warm weather.

Get Your AC Checkup Booked

Spring is a time of revival, and to many that includes a hefty portion of house, garage and yard sprucing. With the toastier temps near, it’s also a fantastic idea to include AC service on that listing.

Spring is a great time of year to get your cooling system scrubbed and inspected. Waiting to switch it on until the first warm day of the year can be a gamble. If you have to schedule service or a new unit, you might be waiting a long time for an appointment. And that could turn extremely unbearable.

And for those with allergies, being well prepared with a clean air conditioning system will help ensure the best indoor air quality during pollen season.

Plus, cooling upkeep might be a requirement for your system’s manufacturer warranty or any additional extended warranty.

Can I Finish Service on My Own?

There are methods that you can do to help keep your air conditioner unit in the best order:

  • Replace your air filter. Clogged filters restrict airflow and might lower your unit’s efficiency. While the replacement timeline depends on the kind you have, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends each month or two. This is particularly crucial if you suffer from allergies or have animals in your house.
  • Lawn maintenance by the exterior condenser. Ensure there’s not any grass, weeds or bushes close to your air conditioning equipment. We recommend keeping 2–3 feet of free room. You should also get rid of any leaves or twigs that have collected inside your system, as this may limit airflow.
