How Often Should I Have My HVAC System Serviced?

Have you ever experienced an HVAC breakdown in the middle of summer? If you have, you’ll understand how often we take these systems for granted. Maintaining optimum temperatures during the hot summer months, is a must for keeping your family comfortable and your home protected from the elements.

It’s important to have your HVAC serviced, inspected, and cleaned regularly by a professional. Even if you think your HVAC has no problems, it’s wise to have regular checkups. Routine maintenance on your HVAC system adds years of use to its life and will prevent it from going bust during a summer heatwave.

At a minimum, your HVAC system should receive a deep clean once a year, usually in the spring before the hot summer weather hits. Ideally, you should also get your system inspected and serviced at the end of each season before you switch it off.

To keep your HVAC running at optimum and to prevent breakdowns, you may want to service your HVAC monthly, especially during the summer months when your system is under a lot of stress. Acker Heating & Cooling can provide you with preventative maintenance plans to keep your systems running smoothly year-round.

What happens when your HVAC is not regularly serviced?

As your HVAC system is in use, it accumulates dust and dirt in key areas that affect its efficiency, such as the condensing coils and air filters. When left unchecked, your system loses operating efficiency each year because of this buildup. Even if it continues to run, it won’t be able to cool your house as best as it could if it were clean.

Surprisingly, many people do not have their HVAC regularly serviced, and as a result, their system does not run as efficiently as it could, and unexpected breakdowns occur more often. This ends up costing them money for repairs, as well as headache and lack of comfort, that could have been easily avoided with regular checkups.

Replacing your air conditioner is a huge expense, and even minor fixes can cost hundreds of dollars, so investing a much smaller amount to keep it serviced and running smoothly all year is a no brainer.

A typical HVAC service should include checking the motor, blower, and coils. The technician will also look at the drain line, the return and supply lines, and connections.
