As warmer weather rolls around, you may be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Odessa? Particularly if your AC equipment is recently purchased or was running well last season.

Here’s one way to look at it. You wouldn’t purchase a brand-new automobile and never expect to request any maintenance for it, such as putting in fresh oil or putting on 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 parts can fail.

Having your system checked annually by a Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning specialist can help spot small issues before they lead to large malfunctions. (And cause your AC to stop working!)

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 debris, which can negatively affect your unit’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a specialist to service delicate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard clippings that accumulate within your unit can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these issues can create higher energy consumption—and a higher energy bill!
  3. It could extend your unit’s life span. A clean system is an efficient one and may even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you won’t spend on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, as you won’t have to get new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps spot little problems before they lead to big, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will keenly examine pieces and complete a set of air conditioning performance checks. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to find troubles before they turn into large issues that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps ensure worry-free comfort throughout the warmest days. After your air conditioner is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your system is ready to provide worry-free cooling. Even on the most humid 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 maintenance, your unit is open to early breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
