If you live in Semmes AL, Your air conditioning equipment often performs under high demand. With constant stopping and starting, parts wear out and connections loosen. Preventative maintenance keeps your air conditioner performing and helps you to avoid costly repairs.
Recommended Frequency for Air Conditioner Maintenance
In warm climates, such as Alabama, most HVAC professionals recommend scheduling preventative maintenance for your AC system once per year. Experts recommend that routine maintenance be performed in the springtime for three reasons. First, when you maintain your AC unit in the spring, your system is ready when the weather turns warm. Second, maintaining your equipment in the spring gives you plenty of time to repair worn parts and get the system in shape for the season. Third, scheduling maintenance service in the spring will ensure that you receive prompt service. As the summer moves in, HVAC companies receive a high volume of service calls. By then, you may have to wait longer for your service appointment.

Heat pumps, boilers and electric furnaces should also be maintained once per year. Experts recommend that these heating units be maintained in the fall. Because gas furnaces are more efficient, these furnaces should be maintained at least every other year. However, routine maintenance is important for gas furnaces. Gas systems emit small amounts of toxic gas during normal operation. These levels are checked and verified during a maintenance visit. As a safety precaution, routine maintenance for gas units is imperative.
