How Often Should I Get an AC Tune-Up?

It’s crucial to maintain your AC system, but for most homeowners that means learning how to. Unless you’re an HVAC professional, determining when and how to maintain your air conditioner can be confusing. Luckily, the experts at Air Clinic DFW have all of the HVAC maintenance tips you need to keep your AC running smoothly.

When to Get an AC Tune-Up

You should schedule an AC tune-up once a year in the spring before the weather gets too warm. This timing will ensure that your air conditioner is in top condition and ready to take on the hot Texas summer without any issues. The same goes for heater tune-ups, which should be done in the fall before it gets too cold.

Why are tune-ups so important?

AC tune-ups and HVAC inspections may sound like a sales gimmick, but preventative maintenance is incredibly important to the short-term and long-term health of your air conditioner. That’s why heating and cooling companies advertise them so fiercely. 

A comprehensive tune-up has several benefits for your AC. A full system inspection can catch small issues long before they begin to affect the system’s performance as major problems. This keeps the system running properly, keeps small problems from causing bigger ones and even reduces the chance of a breakdown during the summer. 

Tune-ups are designed to keep your AC system working at its highest possible efficiency, which will save you money on energy bills. Most importantly, however, regular maintenance throughout your air conditioner’s life will reduce the amount of wear and tear it experiences. This can lead to a longer life for your AC and save you the trouble of investing in a new system so soon.

Other Maintenance Tips

There are several other things you can do to keep your AC system well-maintained. The most important thing you can do is remember to change your AC filter every couple of months, more if you have shedding pets. Replacing your filter regularly will keep dust and debris out of the system, and it’s easy to set a reminder on your phone to check it. 

It’s also important not to wait when it comes to AC repairs. While it can be easy to forget about calling an HVAC company day after day, the problem will only get worse with time. When you notice a problem with your air conditioner, act on it as soon as possible.
