How Often Should Your AC Be Serviced? | Day & Night Air Conditioning, Furnace, & Plumbing

Your air conditioner is a significant investment. Keeping it running efficiently, like any appliance, requires periodic maintenance. The best option is to schedule regular maintenance and service visits with your local HVAC professional.

Here in Phoenix, AC service and maintenance is vital. Our climate extremes can wreak havoc on even the best HVAC systems. Regular maintenance can help prolong the life of your unit, keep it running efficiently, and make sure it’s ready to cool your home when you need it.

How Often Should You Get Your Air Conditioner Serviced?

Many professionals in the Phoenix area recommend that you have your AC serviced at least once a year. However, the Phoenix climate can be harsh. Here at Day & Night Air, we recommend that you service your system at least twice a year - in the spring, before the heat arrives, and in the fall as the temperatures drop.

Regular service should include a complete visual inspection of your entire system including condensers, ductwork, and your air filtration system. Filters should be changed or cleaned; indoor air vents should be cleaned and checked. The outdoor unit should be kept clear of debris, leaves, and dust to ensure maximum efficiency, and any worn out parts replaced to prevent future problems proactively.

Signs You May Need AC Service

While regularly scheduled maintenance and service are important, there are other signs to watch for that can indicate service is needed.

  • If your system is five years old or older, it may not be running at peak efficiency. If you notice a spike in your utility bills, call your technician.
  • If you notice hot or cold spots in your home, it could indicate problems with the ductwork, and you should have it checked.
  • If you notice unusual noises, it can be a sign indicating worn parts. Contact your AC professional to prevent costly problems down the road.
