As springtime starts, you may be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Mankato area? Particularly if your air conditioning unit is recently purchased or was running just fine last summer.

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

The same is applicable to your air conditioning. It’s equipment that uses fuel and has moving pieces. Like a car, it can get leaks and its moving components can break down.

Having your system checked seasonally by a Northern Comfort Inc professional can help spot small issues before they turn into large breakdowns. (And cause your air conditioning to stop operating!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your system clean. Since your AC is located outdoors, it’s more inclined to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can majorly affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling an expert to service delicate internal components.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate within your equipment can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these problems can create higher energy needs—and a higher energy bill!
  3. It could prolong your system’s life span. A clean air conditioner is an efficient one and might even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, as you won’t have to buy new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps find little troubles before they turn into big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will keenly examine components and complete a series of cooling performance verifications. These in-depth procedures often allow us to locate issues before they turn into major issues that result in a costly repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free operation throughout the season. After your system is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your unit is ready to give worry-free air. Even on the muggiest days. It’s one of the smartest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty going. Most manufacturers call for regular maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this tune-up, your equipment is open to advanced breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
