Are AC tune-ups worth it? We get that question all the time at Top Notch Heating, Cooling & Plumbing. And every time, we have the same answer: is getting your car’s oil changed worth it? Just like a car’s engine, your air conditioner needs to be tuned up regularly – many times these tune-ups are the only way to spot potential problems with your air conditioner before they cause your whole system to break down.

Is an AC Tune-Up Worth It?
There are numerous benefits to an air conditioner tune-up – both financial and timely. Not only can an annual AC tune-up save you as much as 30 percent on your monthly energy costs, but it could also save you hundreds of dollars (and hours of stress!) by identifying and letting you fix any potential issues with your air conditioning system before they become major problems.
In addition to the cost saving benefits, an AC tune-up will ensure that your air conditioning system runs cleanly and efficiently all season long. An air conditioning inspection will take care of things like dirty filters or cracked components in your air conditioning system to make sure that your home will stay cool in the summer heat.
How Can I Maintain My Air Conditioner?
Yes! In fact, any maintenance you perform on your air conditioner in between inspections can be a big help in making it run more efficiently throughout the summer. While professional air conditioner tune-ups should be scheduled annually from a certified air conditioning contractor, like Top Notch, you can take these extra steps to help your cooling system run efficiently throughout the summer.
One of the easiest things you can do is make sure the outdoor condensing unit is not blocked by anything, including leaves, grass clippings, bushes, etc. Your condenser works by transferring the heat from the inside of your house to the outside air. Needless to say, if air can’t get to the condenser, it’s going to have a harder time eliminating the heat from inside. If your cooling system is working overtime to complete this task, you may be losing hundreds of dollars on your electric bill.
Regular AC Maintenance
In addition, you should make sure to clean or replace your air filters regularly (once a month is a good idea). Dirty air filters can impede air flow, making your air conditioner run at much lower efficiency levels. If filters get too dirty, it could even cause your evaporator to ice up!
