How Often Does My AC Unit Need Servicing?

It may be chilly and grey today, but as we well know, seasons don’t last very long here in Texas. Before you know it, the skies are clearing, the sun is peeking out, and the temperatures are rising again. This means that it’s time to put your trusted AC unit back into use.

This is the perfect time of year to ensure that your unit is in top-notch condition for the sweltering days ahead. Should you have your AC serviced?

Regular servicing will not only put your mind at ease but also save you money on fixing failures caused by improper maintenance. Routine servicing is the only surefire way to ensure peak performance of your AC unit. Even if you don’t suspect any issues, it’s important to have your unit inspected and serviced at least once a year. We recommend that you have your yearly AC maintenance check in spring, before the summer season, and have your heating system serviced in fall before the cold days come.

Regular servicing:

Keeps your unit in tip-top shape and ensures optimal performance when you need it the most.

Improves and maintains the efficiency of your unit making sure it stays in peak condition.

Helps prevent serious issues which often arise from neglecting smaller problems.

Recovers efficiency your unit has lost after years of operation, giving it as much as 95% of its original value.

Servicing your AC unit every year might seem like an expensive feat. Quite the contrary, an AC that is serviced regularly will work at maximum efficiency, lowering your energy costs and reducing the chance of breakdowns and expensive repairs.

A standard maintenance check usually includes checking the following components: refrigerant level, thermostat settings, system controls, condensate drain, and evaporator coil.

However, even if you have your unit professionally maintained, there are some measures you can take yourself: clean and change the filters as needed to decrease your energy bills and ensure optimal efficiency.

In addition to routine service, it goes without saying that you should seek professional help if you think that something is wrong with your AC unit. If you hear strange noises, suspect refrigerant leaks, or notice your evaporator coil is frozen, have your unit inspected as soon as possible to avoid serious and expensive issues, such as compressor failure.

Nothing is more frustrating than your air conditioner failing when you need it the most. Luckily, there’s no reason for this to happen if you take the necessary steps to ensure optimal performance. Replace the filters, keep your unit cleaned and have it inspected and serviced by HVAC experts on a regular basis.
