AC Maintenance FAQs

What time of year is best for AC maintenance? 

The ideal times for AC maintenance are winter and spring. Winter is excellent because it's the off-season, and HVAC technicians often have more availability for appointments. It's an opportunity to address any issues before the cooling season begins. Spring is also a good time, just before the AC sees heavy use. It ensures that your system is in top shape for the summer heat. Regular maintenance in both seasons can prevent breakdowns, improve efficiency, and extend the lifespan of your air conditioning system.

How often should AC filters be changed?

Air conditioning filters should typically be changed every 1 to 3 months. The frequency depends on factors like the type of filter, the level of usage, and the presence of pets or allergies in the household. Basic fiberglass filters may need changing every month, while higher-quality pleated filters can last up to three months. Regular filter changes are crucial to maintain indoor air quality, prevent strain on the AC unit, and ensure optimal energy efficiency. It's advisable to check the manufacturer's recommendations for your specific filter type and consult your HVAC technician for personalized advice.

How often should AC be recharged?

The need to recharge an air conditioner's refrigerant, typically a type of refrigerant known as R-410A or R-22, should be infrequent if the system is functioning properly. Air conditioners are designed to circulate refrigerant without loss, so it's not a regular maintenance task. If your AC system is losing refrigerant, it likely indicates a leak that needs to be fixed by a professional HVAC technician. Therefore, the frequency of recharging your AC system should ideally be zero, with a focus on identifying and resolving leaks instead of routine recharging.

What are the benefits of an HVAC system tune-up?

Some of the benefits of an HVAC system tune-up are:

  • Your HVAC system breaks down less
  • Your HVAC system runs more effectively
  • Your energy bills are lower each month

If you have your HVAC system tuned up on a regular basis, it can also last longer and be covered under the manufacturer's warranty.
