How Often Should You Get Your AC Unit Serviced?

When that first warm day of the season hits, you want your air conditioner in peak performance, ready to blast cool, fresh air into your home. But if it’s been sitting on it’s own and unused since last year, there’s a chance there may be a problem you don’t know about. That’s why Madsen suggests you have your AC unit serviced and inspected on a regular basis.

When should I have my AC unit serviced?

Make a regular appointment to have your unit inspected, serviced, and cleaned once a year, ideally in the early spring before you need it to be operating properly. During these appointments, our technicians are able to check the quality of the filter, the outdoor unit, the indoor ductwork and the overall health of the system, using the proper tools for the job.

Why should I have my AC unit serviced?

Aside from spending a sweltering day without air conditioning? Even though your unit may have operated well last year, there is a chance the winter months have caused issues. Plus, as a system runs, it accumulates dust and dirt in important areas that you might not be able to see. This dirt can cause operating inefficiency, potentially costing you more in energy bills (see our article about cleaning your AC unit condenser coils) and, over time, cause more serious issues.

Regular servicing also allows technicians to find potential of small problems and fix them before they cause damage (see our list of the most common air conditioner issues), and can help prolong the life span of your equipment.


Keeping your home cool and comfortable during the summer is extremely important to your health and the health of your family! A regular service plan can ensure that our trained and experienced Madsen technicians are scheduled to inspect your unit well before you need it. Contact us today.
