Most HVAC service companies recommend that you should have an annual checkup for your air conditioner in the spring and an annual checkup for your heating unit in the late summer or fall. In both situations, it is before you begin to use the units on a regular basis. Annual checkups ensure that your air conditioner is properly charged and the refrigerant is not leaking, and the heating unit checkup makes sure that there is not a problem with carbon monoxide. As a caveat, HVAC companies note that while checkups do not guarantee a unit will not break down, they can detect problems that may cause a malfunction, which can be addressed immediately. All HVAC companies do agree that the single most important act of preventive maintenance is to simply change the unit’s filter(s) at the recommended intervals.
