As springtime starts, you might be thinking, is an AC tune-up worth it in Rapid City? Even if your air conditioning unit is up-to-date or was running good last year.

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

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

Having your unit checked annually by a Street Heating and Cooling expert 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 air conditioner is installed outdoors, it’s more vulnerable to having a buildup of dirt, leaves and other yard refuse, which can majorly affect your equipment’s efficiency. While you can try our how to clean your AC guide, we recommend calling a professional to service intricate internal parts.
  2. It keeps your unit efficient. Dirt and yard refuse that accumulate inside your equipment can make it work harder and decrease airflow. Both these issues can create higher energy needs—and a more expensive cooling bill!
  3. It could extend your unit’s life span. A clean unit is an efficient one and could even help it work for a longer period of time. That’s money that you’ll keep on your monthly cooling costs and over the years, as you won’t have to replace your equipment as quickly.
  4. It helps find little troubles before they lead to big, costly problems. During professional AC maintenance, your technician will carefully examine components and complete a cycle of cooling performance checks. These detailed procedures often allow us to find problems before they turn into major issues that result in a pricey repair bill.
  5. It helps deliver worry-free comfort throughout the summer. After your air conditioner is serviced, you’ll have peace of mind being aware your system is ready to deliver worry-free cooling. Even on the warmest days. It’s one of the smartest methods to keep your air conditioner from failing.
  6. It keeps your warranty in place. Most manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep your warranty in place. Without this service, your equipment is open to advanced breakdowns and lowered efficiency.
