For most homeowners, the term “spring cleaning” conjures images of sweeping floors and scrubbing walls, stacking tires and hanging curtains. Another important task to include on your to-do list is scheduling an AC checkup. Here are just a few reasons why this checkup should be a spring priority.
1. Beat the Rush
While temperatures will rise in the spring, most areas won’t hit the highest of highs until summer sets in. Along with an increase in heat, summer will bring an increase in homeowners suddenly hoping to get their HVAC systems serviced. Stay ahead of the pack. Request an AC tuneup / checkup while demand is low, so you can potentially avail of lower prices and more scheduling options.
2. Improve Air Quality
Most homeowners find very few reasons to run their Trane AC systems during the winter. This period of inactivity gives dust and dirt plenty of time to build up. Circulating unclean air throughout your house is a potential health hazard, so have every part of the system clean and tidy before turning it back on.
3. Lower Energy Bills
Your AC will be working overtime during the summer, so perhaps you’re already expecting an increase in your monthly energy bill. However, you can keep those costs as low as possible by ensuring your system is running as efficiently as possiblewith an ac tune up. For example, issues as subtle as dirty air filters or AC coils can force your system to work harder, resulting in higher energy bills. Routine maintenance will resolve those issues.

4. Extend Life of System
Imagine turning on your AC during the hottest day of summer only to hear a rattling noise – or worse, no sounds from the system at all. Now imagine the price tag that will come with the emergency maintenance or air conditioning replacement your system will need.
During a routine checkup in the spring, a professional will search for and alert you of defective and worn out parts in your AC system. This process helps you avoid summer surprises that can leave you and your wallet scorched.
5. Warranty Requirements
In some cases, manufacturer warranties come with an easily overlooked stipulation: You must schedule routine maintenance on your system. To keep your warranty valid, be sure to save any paperwork you receive after an AC checkup this spring.
