As spring begins, you might be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Wausau? Even if your cooling equipment is recently installed or was running just fine last year.

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

The same is applicable to your air conditioner. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving components. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving pieces can fail.

Having your equipment checked annually by a Gilray Heating and Cooling technician can help spot little issues before they lead to large malfunctions. (And cause your unit to stop running!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your unit clean. Since your AC is installed outdoors, it’s more vulnerable to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard clippings, which can majorly affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to service complicated internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your AC efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate within your unit can make it work harder and restrict airflow. Both these problems can lead to higher energy needs—and a higher energy bill!
  3. It could lengthen your unit’s life span. A clean air conditioner is an efficient one and might even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly electricity costs and over the years, because you won’t have to install new equipment as soon.
  4. It helps pinpoint little problems before they lead to big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will carefully examine pieces and complete a series of cooling performance verifications. These in-depth procedures often allow us to find troubles before they turn into extensive 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 provide worry-free air. Even on the muggiest 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 valid. Without this work, your system is open to premature breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
