As warmer weather rolls around, you may be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Pocatello? Particularly if your cooling equipment is up-to-date or was running good last summer.

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

The same affects your air conditioner. It’s equipment that uses fuel and has moving components. Like a car, it can get leaks and its moving pieces can wear out.

Having your unit checked seasonally by a Vogts Heating & Air technician can help spot small issues before they turn into large meltdowns. (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 cooling system is located outdoors, it’s more susceptible to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can negatively affect your system’s efficiency. While you can use our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a specialist to service intricate internal components.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate within your unit can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these issues can lead to higher energy needs—and a higher energy bill!
  3. It could extend your system’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and may even help it work 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 get new equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps find little issues before they lead to big, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will carefully examine components and complete a cycle of air conditioning performance tests. These all-inclusive procedures often allow us to locate issues before they turn into major problems that result in an expensive repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free operation throughout the warmest days. After your air conditioner is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your unit is ready to give 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 valid. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this service, your unit is open to advanced breakdowns and decreased efficiency.
