AC Maintenance

What's the best way to keep your AC running comfortably without high energy bills? Annual AC maintenance will keep your system running all season long maintaining the energy efficiency and low running cost of a new unit.

Studies show that seasonal maintenance can keep your unit running longer and more efficiently, saving you money on repairs and your energy bills. Air conditioning maintenance can prevent the need for expensive repairs by ensuring your machine is running at top performance. AC maintenance can also save money when you sell your home, by showing you kept your home's utility equipment in optimal condition.

Air Conditioning Maintenance FAQs

What is the average cost of AC maintenance service near Greenville?

The upkeep of your air conditioner is a wise investment in your home. The typical yearly maintenance expense for an air conditioner is between $100 and $150. This includes a cleaning and a tune-up which includes examining, tightening and testing all parts, as well as minor part replacement, such as an air filter or coil cleaning.

How often should a home AC unit be serviced near Greenville?

We suggest that your home air conditioning system be serviced once a year. The same is true of your heating system. While regular check-ins and cleaning throughout the year are always a good idea to ensure your system is functioning well, an annual air conditioner service appointment is always required.

What is included in AC maintenance service near Greenville?

Regardless of how frequently you have your air conditioning unit serviced, the technician will complete the same set of duties to ensure that your system is in good working order.

Among the AC service tasks are:

  • Change the air filters.
  • Indoor and outdoor coils should be cleaned and inspected.
  • Examine the condensate pump.
  • Check to see if the thermostat is working correctly.
  • Remove any dirt and debris from the condensate pump.
Is it necessary to service your home AC unit every year?

Yes, it is recommended to have your AC system serviced by a licensed HVAC professional at least once a year.

Regular AC maintenance can help ensure that your system is running efficiently, prevent breakdowns, and extend the life of your system. During a typical AC maintenance visit, an HVAC professional will clean and inspect your AC system, replace air filters, check refrigerant levels, lubricate moving parts, and test the system's performance. This can help ensure that your system is running at peak efficiency and identify any potential issues before they become major problems.

How often should AC filters be changed?

AC filters should be changed at least every three months, although it may need to be done more frequently if the system is used frequently or if you have pets or allergies. Regularly changing AC filters can improve indoor air quality and help your system run more efficiently.

How often do you need to recharge your home AC unit?

AC systems typically should not need to be recharged on a regular basis because they are made to last for many years without needing a recharge. The age and condition of the AC system, usage patterns, and maintenance history are just a few of the variables that affect how frequently the AC needs to be recharged. You should get in touch with a certified HVAC specialist to diagnose and fix the problem if your air conditioner is running low on refrigerant because that could be an indication of a leak.
