How Often Should I Service My Air Conditioner?

Most people understand that it’s important to maintain your AC system, but it’s a bit hard to know what this entails. One of the most common questions we get in the HVAC industry is about how often you should have your AC serviced. Let’s break it down.

Twice Yearly AC Maintenance

You should have a technician look at your system in what we call an air conditioning tune-up two times a year. This is because you must prepare your HVAC system for both hot and cold weather. No one wants to get caught without AC in triple-digit heat or come home to a broken-down heater on the coldest day of the year.

The best time to schedule your AC tune-up is in the spring before the weather gets too hot. Likewise, you’ll want to schedule another tune-up in fall for your heater. This way, you can be sure your system is ready for the change of seasons.

What happens during a tune-up?

During your comprehensive tune-up from Go Green Heating and Cooling, our technician will completely clean and test your system to make sure every part of it is working correctly. This includes:

  • Clean and straighten the fins
  • Level the unit
  • Clean the coils of the evaporator and condenser
  • Check and filling the coolant
  • Lubricate moving parts
  • Double-check your thermostat settings
  • Examine the condensation pan and drain
  • Check and tighten loose electrical connections and controls
  • Clean and fine-tune air handling and blower systems to check for adequate airflow

If your system needs repairs, our technician will offer a pressure-free solution and repair the system during the same visit if possible.

Why is a tune-up important?

Some HVAC companies will tell you to get a tune-up 1,000 times without telling you why it’s so important. This regular maintenance isn’t just a scheme to take your money! Having a tune-up twice a year makes sure that your system is working properly. 

If there’s a small issue, the technician will spot it before it gets bigger and causes other problems, preventing repairs that cost much more than a couple of tune-ups. When you take care of your AC, it can even add to the system’s lifespan and keep it running better for longer. When your AC is efficient, your energy bills are lower. 

With such clear and immediate benefits, having your AC serviced is a no-brainer. Contact Go Green Heating and Cooling today to schedule your tune-up and receive premium Austin air conditioner maintenance.

Betsy W.

Professional and Honest

After receiving a ridiculously high quote from the HVAC company sent out by our home warranty, my husband wanted a second opinion. Our technician Mike was thorough and honest about what needed repair. Not only was the diagnosis much simpler, so was the price. Mike got the repair done quickly and was very professional. We’ll definitely be calling Go Green again.
