There is always a lot of uncertainty surrounding when and how often an air conditioning system should have regular maintenance performed on it. By a general rule of thumb, an air conditioning system should have, minimally, one tuneup performed annually. Now in an environment such as Houston, where the weather stays hot and humid for the bulk of the year, you will be using your home or business’s air conditioning unit heavily. This means, you have the potential to greatly benefit from more than one air conditioner tuneup a year.
An air conditioning tuneup is designed to check on all of the essential functions and parts of your air conditioning system. This is done to make sure that if there is a problem with your air conditioner, it is caught early on, before the problem can lead to a high end repair, or a full blown replacement.
The best analogy for why you need to have your air conditioner serviced is this: Your air conditioner is a complex machine that relies on many different parts to work in harmony together in order to properly function, much like a vehicle. If you were to buy a new vehicle, and drive that vehicle every single day without ever changing the oil or having your vehicle inspected, it would not take long for your to start having a serious problem. Your lights would go out, your oil would be completely used and you vehicle would start to operate less efficiently. You would not only notice a severe decline in the performance of your vehicle, you would greatly decrease the lifespan of your vehicle.
The best time of the year to have your air conditioner serviced for general maintenance and a tune-up would be right before the warm spring season and right after summer. This is because as you approach spring, in Houston, this means you are approaching the beginning of warm weather. While spring may be a mild season in most climates, that is not the case in Houston. After summer is also a great time to schedule you air conditioner maintenance because your unit will have been working long days and nights to keep your home cool during the blistering heat of summertime.
