Some of the frequently asked questions we receive about air conditioner maintenance include:

How often should you have your air conditioner serviced?

Air conditioning systems should be serviced every spring. (Your heating system should be professionally serviced every fall.)

DIY maintenance services for homeowners include:

  • Clean around the outside condenser unit; if possible, there should be about a 2-foot clearance between the unit and any shrubs/growth.
  • Inspect/replace air filters every 30-90 days.
  • Keep your AC/HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) area clean; no nearby debris or dust accumulation.
  • Use ceiling fans to enhance air circulation.
  • Wipe down/clean your registers every 30-60 days.

The most important DIY maintenance for your AC unit is to know when to call your local HVAC professional.

Is it necessary to service your AC every year?

Yes, if you want to save money every month and have your system last longer. Maybe the most important reason to have your AC unit serviced every spring is to improve your IAQ (indoor air quality). If you have small children or elderly family members, or if anyone in the home suffers from allergies, healthier IAQ can measurably improve your quality of life.
