How Often Should You Get Maintenance for Your Heating and AC Units?

Your HVAC system is designed to provide you with cool temperatures in the summer and warm air in the winter. While this system is responsible for comfortable indoor temperatures, most people don’t think about their HVAC unit until something goes wrong. One of the easiest ways to prevent HVAC system repairs or system failure is the schedule regular air conditioner tune-up appointments. This appointment will double as a heating tune-up appointment and ensure your system gives you excellent service year-round.

How Often Should You Schedule Air Conditioner Tune-Up and Heating Tune-Up Appointments?

The health of your HVAC unit is critical to your home or business environment and, ultimately, your comfort. If something goes wrong with your unit, you may be temporarily inconvenienced by the inability to regulate your home or business’s internal temperature. HVAC tune-up appointments will ensure that your HVAC unit is in the best working order and can perform its job unhindered.

Most HVAC units need maintenance at least once a year. Others may need more frequent tune-ups based on different factors, including your environment, the location of the HVAC unit, how often it’s being used, how often or whether it’s ever been serviced in the past, and the age of the unit. However, as a general rule of thumb, you should schedule HVAC tune-ups at least once a year to avoid unnecessary repair costs or, worse, eventual system failure.

The Importance of Preventative Maintenance

Establishing a consistent maintenance schedule is an important preventative step as it ensures that your HVAC unit is clean and fully operable year-round. And, if in the case that the unit has a small problem that could potentially turn into a serious issue, the technicians will be able to address the issue before it becomes a significant problem that affects the entire system or temporarily renders it inoperable.

What Happens During an HVAC Tune-Up Appointment?

During your HVAC tune-up appointment, qualified technicians will evaluate your system and remove any dirt or build-up from the machine that’s making it work harder than it needs to maintain a comfortable temperature indoors. Technicians will clean and fine-tune your equipment to ensure that it performs better and lasts longer.

They will also evaluate every aspect of your system to ensure that it’s operating at peak efficiency, which will save you money on energy costs long-term. Some of the most common HVAC issues stem from a lack of maintenance. Regular maintenance appointments will optimize and extend the life of your unit, and the technicians can make recommendations about replacing parts, performing repairs, or replacing the entire system if necessary.

Don’t let lack of maintenance on your part be why your HVAC unit develops issues or stops working altogether. By establishing a regular maintenance schedule, you can ensure that your system is in excellent working condition, no matter the temperature.
