How Often Should AC Units be Serviced?

If you want to make the most of your air conditioning system, arranging a regular preventative maintenance will not only maximise the lifespan of your air conditioning, it will keep your energy costs down throughout the year too! As air conditioning efficiency can decrease by 5% a year or even more for older systems, it is important your system is maintained by an experienced air conditioning engineer at least once per year so you can make the most of your investment and your air conditioning continues to operate for years to come. 

How much does air conditioning maintenance cost?

Whilst MAC’s mobile engineers are on call for both domestic and commercial sites throughout the Midlands, the cost of an air conditioning maintenance can vary depending on not only on the number of units, but the type and size of the air conditioning system and whether it was installed by MAC.

Domestic Air Conditioner Maintenance for a home

As the top air conditioning service provider in the Midlands, MAC can provide flexible payment options on maintenance packages for residential air conditioning, giving you the option to make a single payment for your annual service or in smaller monthly instalments. 

Pricing starts as little as £10 a month or one payment of £132 per year for one split system (one outdoor unit and one indoor unit) and by signing up for maintenance you get all the benefits of the maintenance plan including callout costs, labour and cost of parts associated with your annual service.*

*For air conditioning not installed by MAC you instead have a discounted rate applied for parts and labour but you will still be charged a callout fee.

Commercial Air Conditioner Maintenance for a business

Alternatively, for HVAC maintenance at commercial or industrial premises, MAC can also provide options on ongoing maintenance contracts based on your needs, from ducted air conditioning to ceiling cassettes, our mobile engineers have you covered.

Commercial maintenance can be paid yearly and pricing starts at £150 per year for one split system (one indoor and one outdoor unit) and just like domestic customers you get all the benefits of the maintenance plan by signing up. This will include callout costs, labour and cost of parts associated with your annual service.*

*For air conditioning not installed by MAC you instead have a discounted rate applied for parts and labour but you will still be charged a callout fee.

What if my air conditioning was not installed by MAC?

It’s not a problem if your air conditioning wasn’t installed by MAC though, our maintenance services are available to all types of HVAC system regardless of who installed it for you. By signing up for maintenance with MAC you will get a discounted parts and labour rate but you will be charged a callout fee.

What are the signs your air conditioning needs maintenance?

Whilst it is recommended to arrange regular air conditioning maintenance once a year, it is also useful to be able to recognise the signs that necessary maintenance may be needed outside of planned preventative maintenance too. Not only is this helpful to avoid potential breakdowns of your air con unit, but it also will ensure optimal performance so the efficiency of your air conditioning stays high and you can maximise the lifespan of your aircon too. 

Key indicators that your air conditioning system may require maintenance service are:

Strange Noises coming from the air conditioning unit

If you can hear unusual sounds coming from your air conditioning unit, that is very likely to indicate a more serious internal problem which should be addressed as soon as possible for both safety reasons and to reduce further damage that could end up being irreversible if ignored. 

Dirty Air Conditioner Filters

Having unclean filters within your air conditioning system will not only impact air quality but dirt and debris will also mean airflow is obstructed and negatively influence the performance of your air conditioning, resulting in higher electricity use which will be reflected in your energy bills.

Unusual Odours coming from the air conditioning system

Strange smells coming from your air conditioning is also a sign your air conditioner needs professional cleaning due to an accumulation of dust and debris or even mould due to moisture buildup from obstructed condensation drainage. 

Reduced Cooling Efficiency

If you air conditioner isn’t reaching the desired temperature it usually indicates your air conditioner has a performance issue which may be linked to a mechanical problem or occasionally reduced refrigerant levels due to hindered airflow.
