As springtime rolls around, you might be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Pocatello? Especially if your AC equipment is up-to-date or was running well last summer.

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

The same applies for your air conditioner. It’s equipment that consumes fuel and has moving components. Like a vehicle, it can get leaks and its moving components can fail.

Having your equipment checked annually by a Vogts Heating & Air technician can help spot little issues before they become large meltdowns. (And cause your system to stop working!)

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 vulnerable to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can negatively affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a pro to service delicate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate within your system can make it work harder and lower airflow. Both these problems can lead to higher energy consumption—and a bigger utility bill!
  3. It could lengthen your unit’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and may even help it last for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly energy costs and over the years, since you won’t have to replace your equipment as fast.
  4. It helps identify little issues before they lead to big, expensive problems. During professional AC maintenance, your specialist will closely examine components and complete a series of cooling performance verifications. These detailed procedures often allow us to locate problems before they turn into extensive issues that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps guarantee worry-free cooling throughout the season. After your system is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your unit is ready to provide worry-free cooling. Even on the hottest 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 unit is open to advanced breakdowns and limited efficiency.
