There are many assets that you have that need proper preventative maintenance in order to achieve peak performance and preserve lifespan. You don’t question that it is necessary, but you may not be sure how often it should be done. There is a rule of thumb for nearly everything, such as twice a year or after 5,000 miles on your vehicle between service visits. The same is true regarding air conditioning service.

Air Conditioning Service

The rule of thumb for keeping your air conditioner running smoothly and efficiently is having it serviced once a year, plus a second visit to cover the heating part of your HVAC system for a total of two visits per year. Ideally, these visits should be before you need to turn the unit on for the season so that you can enjoy a lower utility bill right from the beginning.

You do not have to limit yourself to just two visits per year. You should also call for air conditioning service if you notice any symptoms that would indicate a potential problem is developing– for example, if it seems like the system runs constantly or if it doesn’t seem like humidity is being properly controlled.
