When Does My Air Conditioner Need to Be Serviced?

The air conditioner needs to be serviced once a year. If you have an HVAC unit, you may get confused by the bi-annual visits. One visit is used to service the air conditioner. The other visit is used to service the heater. We recommend that you have your air conditioner serviced in the spring before you start using it during the summer months. This ensures it will operate efficiently the first time you turn it on.

Why Is My Air Conditioner Running Out of Refrigerant?

If your air conditioner is running out of refrigerant, you have a refrigerant leak somewhere in the system. One thing that a spring service visit helps us do is determine whether the refrigerant is leaking. If it is, we can find out from where it is leaking and repair the problem so that your system does not run out of refrigerant halfway through the summer.

Does the Air Conditioner Help Reduce the Humidity in My Home?

The air conditioner can help reduce the humidity in your home, but if the humidity is severe, you may also want to invest in a dehumidifier. Too much humidity in the indoor air will cause mold and mildew to grow on the surfaces in your home. This can make you ill, especially if you have a pre-existing respiratory illness. If the indoor air feels too humid, even with the air conditioner running, talk with us about a dehumidifier.

How Do I Get As Many Years As Possible Out of My AC?

Have your air conditioner serviced annually to make sure you get as many years as possible out of the unit. It is also important that you keep an eye on your unit to make sure that there isn’t dirt, debris, and leaves collecting around the unit. Also, make sure that your interior layout does not block any of your vents. Save money on your utility bill and wear and tear on the AC unit by running fans inside the home to circulate the air better, closing your drapes and blinds during the day to reduce the AC usage, and changing the air filter every 30 days.
