Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Booking regular AC maintenance is helpful.

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

While there are a couple tasks you can finish alone, you should hire Experts, like the ones at Service Experts Commercial HVAC, for AC examinations and maintenance.

Here are a few steps you can do by yourself as you get ready for summer.

Get Your AC Checkup Set

Spring is a time of rejuvenation, and to many that includes a hefty portion of house, garage and yard freshening. With the hotter temperatures approaching, it’s also a great idea to include AC checkups on that listing.

Spring is a great time of year to get your air conditioning system scrubbed and examined. Waiting to flip it on until the first sweltering day of the year can be a gamble. If you have to have a fix or installation, you may be waiting days for an appointment. And that may turn awfully unpleasant.

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 could be a requirement for your system’s manufacturer warranty or any additional extended warranty.

Can I Finish Maintenance on My Own?

There are procedures that you can do to help keep your AC equipment 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 model you have, the U.S. Department of Energy advises each month or two. This is particularly necessary if you suffer from allergies or have animals in your house.
  • Lawn maintenance by the outdoor condenser. Check the area is free of grass, weeds or bushes close to your air conditioning system. We recommend keeping 2–3 feet of free room. You should also clear any leaves or twigs that have dropped into your system, as this may impede airflow.
