Signs Your AC Unit Is Due for Maintenance

To ensure the optimal performance of your air conditioner, it's recommended to schedule maintenance at least once every twelve months. 

If you notice any of the following, it's a good idea to book an appointment right away:

  • Rising electric and utility bills: An inefficient air conditioner can cause energy bills to skyrocket, indicating the need for maintenance to improve energy consumption.
  • Lowered cooling capacity: If your AC isn't cooling your Tallahassee home as effectively as before, it may be a sign of underlying issues that can be improved with maintenance.
  • Alerts on the thermostat: Notifications or error codes displayed on your thermostat could indicate system malfunctions that must be addressed through maintenance.
  • Constantly switching on and off: Short cycling, where your AC frequently turns on and off, indicates potential issues that should be resolved through maintenance.
  • Poor air quality: Do you find you’re sneezing, coughing, or experiencing other symptoms of poor air quality far more than before? Poor air quality can often be improved with maintenance.

Frequently Asked AC Tune-Up Questions

When is the best time to schedule my AC maintenance?

We recommend servicing your HVAC equipment at the beginning of each season. For air conditioners, we recommend this be scheduled in spring, preferably early spring before heat and humidity can begin to set in as they so often do in Florida. 

How often should I check my air filters?

Checking and changing your air filters regularly is crucial for maintaining the efficiency and performance of your HVAC system. Our Tallahassee air conditioning maintenance pros recommend checking your air filters monthly. While thinner air filters will need to be replaced sooner, such as one-inch disposable filters, thicker filters such as four- and five-inch filters can typically go several months before needing to be replaced. We recommend keeping a few spare air filters around in case you ever find you need to replace one imminently.

What can I do to prepare for an AC tune-up?

Before our technicians arrive for your AC tune-up in Tallahassee, there are a few things you can do to prepare:

  • Put away pets: Ensure that pets are kept in a secure area away from the work zone to ensure their safety and minimize distractions.
  • Clear debris: Remove any debris, leaves, or vegetation around your outdoor AC unit for proper airflow.
  • Make a list of concerns: Note any specific concerns or questions about your HVAC system to discuss with the technician. Whether it's about a new thermostat installation or increased dust in your home, our technicians are here to provide solutions and expert advice.

What part of AC maintenance can I handle myself?

While professional AC maintenance is crucial, there are some tasks you can perform to help maintain optimal AC efficiency:

  • Regularly change air filters: Set a schedule to check your air filter monthly and then replace it as necessary. For thinner filters, this may be as often as every one to three months, while bigger filters may last as long as a year before needing to be changed.
  • Keep the outdoor unit clean: Periodically check your outdoor unit and remove dust and debris to keep airflow unrestricted.
  • Clear the area around the unit: Remove any clutter, weeds, or obstacles around your AC unit to maintain proper airflow.
  • Protect the unit from animals: Prevent animals or pets from accessing or damaging your AC unit to avoid potential issues.

How long does an AC tune-up take?

An AC maintenance call typically takes around two hours per system. However, the timeframe may be slightly extended if you have multiple units or require additional repairs. We understand that scheduling can be challenging, and our local Tallahassee HVAC company is committed to accommodating your needs and working around your schedule whenever possible
