As warmer weather begins, you may be considering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Wilkes Barre and Scranton? Even if your cooling unit is newer or was running well last summer.

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

The same affects your air conditioning. It’s equipment that consumes fuel and has moving pieces. Like a car, it can get leaks and its moving parts can fail.

Having your system checked annually by a GLR Mechanical tech can help spot little 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 system 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 system’s efficiency. While you can follow our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to service delicate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your system efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate in your unit can make it work harder and restrict airflow. Both these issues can create higher energy use—and a more expensive cooling bill!
  3. It could lengthen your equipment’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and might even help it run for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly energy costs and over the years, because you won’t have to get new equipment as fast.
  4. It helps determine little troubles before they become big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your tech will carefully examine components and complete a cycle of cooling performance checks. These in-depth procedures often allow us to locate problems before they turn into big problems that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free cooling throughout the summer. After your air conditioner is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your equipment is ready to deliver worry-free comfort. Even on the hottest days. It’s one of the smartest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty valid. Most manufacturers expect regular maintenance to keep your warranty going. Without this work, your equipment is open to early breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
