“You should have your air conditioner serviced regularly before the start of the warmer weather. A professional will come out to inspect and service your AC. This keeps things in running order and helps spot potential trouble. It costs around $125.00 to $175.00 and can save you thousands in repair or replacement costs.
The technician will give the unit an overall inspection, looking for any signs of trouble. They will test the voltage, inspect the condition of the belts, vents, and ducts, check the refrigerant, and examine the drainage lines. They should also lubricate any ports that may be present.
They will inspect the blower motor and test the thermostat to ensure proper operation. A motor that is drawing too many amps may be about ready to fail completely. A thermostat that doesn’t engage the unit when it’s supposed to could need adjustment or replacing.”

One easy maintenance task that you can do on your own is to check the air filter once a month. Changing these filters is quite simple and doing so will help your system run more smoothly. A clogged filter forces the unit to work harder than necessary and when that happens other parts and components will start to wear down.
