When to Schedule Air Conditioning Service

When to Schedule Air Conditioning Service

It’s heating up in North Texas, so it’s time to schedule your air conditioning service appointment. Your air conditioning unit needs regular maintenance to function correctly. If you neglect your system, its performance will decline while your energy bills increase. It’s much better to have your system ready to go before you need it during the summer months. 

When you switch from heating to cooling your space, it’s a good idea to schedule a professional air conditioning service appointment. Regular service ensures your air conditioning unit is ready for the stress it will undergo to keep you comfortable during the Texas summer. 

There are some things you can do on your own to maintain your system’s efficiency and function. More complicated maintenance, however, requires a trained heating and air professional. Scheduling regular maintenance is the best way to avoid costly repairs or total system replacement. 

DIY air conditioner maintenance 

The best thing you can do is regularly change or clean the:

  • HVAC system filters
  • Coils and coil fins
  • Condensation drains

Keeping these items clean and debris-free will keep your system running efficiently. If you use window units, remember to check your window seals as well. 

These simple DIY maintenance tasks must happen regularly throughout the year to keep your system at optimal performance. Debris on filters and coils directly impacts the system airflow rate, uses more energy, and costs you more money. So it’s smart to set a calendar reminder to check these items regularly. 

Professional service appointments

In the same vein, it’s wise to use the season change as a reminder that it’s time to schedule your professional air conditioning service. During that appointment, an experienced Souther Air technician will complete a comprehensive system inspection to identify and address potential issues. Your technician will use specialty equipment to: 

  • Check for refrigerant leaks
  • Ensure correct refrigerant levels
  • Check seals and ducts for leaks 
  • Inspect terminals and connections
  • Check thermostat function
  • And more

If an issue is present, your technician will repair the equipment and advise you about avoiding future breakdowns. If your system needs repair or maintenance, make your appointment before it gets too hot for comfort.
