As springtime rolls around, you might be wondering, is an AC tune-up worth it in Bishop? Particularly if your cooling equipment is recently purchased or was running good last summer.

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

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

Having your system checked yearly by a Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning pro can help spot small issues before they lead to large malfunctions. (And cause your system to stop operating!)

Six Reasons to Tune Up Your AC in the Spring

  1. It keeps your equipment clean. Since your AC is placed 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 intricate internal pieces.
  2. It keeps your equipment efficient. Dirt and yard debris that accumulate in your system can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these problems can cause higher energy consumption—and a bigger cooling bill!
  3. It could extend your system’s life span. A clean AC is an efficient one and could even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll save on your monthly electricity costs and over the years, because you won’t have to replace your equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps spot little troubles before they turn into big, pricey problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will keenly examine parts and complete a series of AC performance tests. These detailed procedures often allow us to identify problems before they turn into extensive troubles that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free cooling throughout the season. After your air conditioner is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind realizing your system is ready to give worry-free cooling. 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 system is open to premature breakdowns and limited efficiency.
