How often should I get my air conditioner serviced?

The best time to have your air conditioner inspected is early in the spring because it’s better to discover and fix problems with an air conditioner before it breaks down, leaving you sweltering in the heat of summer.

Treat your air conditioner maintenance like a doctor’s check-up. A regular tune-up and inspection ensures there are no problems, and can repair minor issues to prevent a poorly timed breakdown. Avoiding regular maintenance can lead to expensive damage and repairs down the road and may reduce the efficiency and lifespan of your air conditioning unit.

Your entire HVAC system — air conditioner and furnace — needs a bi-annual system check where a routine inspection and maintenance is performed to clean coils, check wiring, test air flow and more to ensure comfortable air is being delivered throughout your home.

These tune-up visits also include duct inspections to make sure there are no leaks or broken ducts. This ensures you’re not losing valuable air to the attic or, conversely, having hot air from the attic or crawl space drawn into the ducts and distributed throughout your home which could create hot and cold spots and force your air conditioner to run harder to keep every room consistently cold.
