As spring begins, you might be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Wausau? Particularly if your air conditioning system is newer or was running good last summer.

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

The same applies for your air conditioning. It’s equipment that needs fuel and has moving pieces. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving parts can fail.

Having your system checked annually by a Gilray Heating and Cooling professional can help spot little issues before they turn into large breakdowns. (And cause your equipment 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 susceptible to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard debris, which can majorly affect your system’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to service complicated internal components.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate within your equipment can make it work harder and restrict airflow. Both these troubles can lead to higher energy use—and a higher utility bill!
  3. It could lengthen your system’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and might even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly electricity costs and over the years, because you won’t have to replace your equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps identify little troubles before they lead to big, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will closely examine components and complete a cycle of cooling performance checks. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to identify issues before they turn into major troubles that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free comfort throughout the summer. After your air conditioner is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your unit is ready to deliver worry-free cooling. 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 expect regular maintenance to keep your warranty valid. Without this service, your unit is open to advanced breakdowns and limited efficiency.
