Expert Advice: ”How often should I have my heating and air conditioning system serviced?” (1)

In my experience, there is no short answer to that question. The short list of variables that come into play might be things such as: Do I have animals in the house or in the yard? Do I have cottonwood trees in my neighborhood? Is my dryer vent near my air conditioner? Do I live on a gravel road? No two homes are really the same when it comes to maintaining a system, but here are a few tips that you can follow to ensure that your system performs well this summer.

First, I advise my customers to check their filters every 30 days. Some of you may have a thermostat that tells you to change your filter in a set amount of time. Both are good places to start. However, I’ve seen a lot of people throw away perfectly clean filters, and I’ve seen a lot of filters that have well outlived their lifespan. So make it a point to put it on your schedule to just check your filters on the first day of the month. If they need to be replaced, then replace them.
