How often should you have your air conditioner serviced?

Thumbtack Editors

You should have your air conditioner and HVAC system serviced at least once per year. This is especially important if you hear a strange noise coming from your system, if your energy bill is higher than normal or if the system just isn’t working well. 

However, preventative maintenance is less expensive than fixing problems. For this reason, it’s important to have a pro come in every spring (before the hot summer weather hits) and service your system. You should also keep the unit clean and change the air filter yourself.
