AC Maintenance in Rapid City, SD

Increase Lifespan, Efficiency & Comfort With Annual Air Conditioning Tune-Ups

When our air conditioners are working as they should, it’s easy to just set the thermostat and forget about them until something goes wrong. However, much like your car, your air conditioner needs routine maintenance as well. If you’re tired of spending large amounts of money on high repair costs or, worse, replacing your unit prior to the end of its expected lifespan, maintenance can help. At Midwestern Mechanical Rapid, Inc., our Rapid City air conditioning maintenance technicians suggest that you let us perform an annual tune up to ensure everything is working as it should. In addition to an annual AC tune, you may want to tune up your furnace at the same time.

How Often Should an AC System Be Serviced?

Regular servicing of your AC system is essential for maintaining its efficiency and longevity. Here's a guide to help you determine how often you should service your AC:

  • Annual Check-Up: Aim to have your AC system serviced at least once a year. This comprehensive check-up includes tasks like cleaning coils, checking refrigerant levels, inspecting electrical connections, and ensuring proper airflow.
  • Consider Seasonal Maintenance: Some homeowners opt for biannual servicing—before the cooling season starts in spring and before the heating season in fall. This proactive approach helps address any issues before they escalate.
  • Assess Usage: If you heavily rely on your AC system or run it continuously during peak seasons, more frequent servicing may be necessary to maintain performance and prevent breakdowns.
  • Account for System Age: Older systems may require more attention. Regular servicing becomes crucial as systems age to address wear and tear and ensure continued efficiency.
  • Environmental Impact: Dust, pollen, and other contaminants can affect your AC system's performance. If your system is exposed to such factors, consider more frequent servicing to keep it clean and functioning optimally.
  • Follow Manufacturer Guidelines: Consult your AC system's manufacturer recommendations for specific servicing intervals and maintenance procedures tailored to your unit.

By adhering to these guidelines and scheduling regular servicing with a qualified HVAC technician, you can ensure your AC system operates smoothly, efficiently, and lasts for years to come.

The Benefits of Routine Maintenance

There’s nothing worse than an unexpected breakdown, or worse, the need for a replacement when you’re least prepared to purchase a new unit. Fortunately, scheduling annual maintenance for your air conditioner can help offset such unwanted surprises.

When you keep up with routine AC maintenance, you will benefit from:

  • Improved energy efficiency: A malfunctioning air conditioner means that it isn’t operating at optimal efficiency levels. This means that it will have to work that much harder to keep your home cool during the hot summer months. Routine maintenance will ensure that your AC continues to operate as efficiently as possible.
  • Lower monthly utility moves: When your unit is operating as efficient as possible, it won’t have to work as hard to keep your home the desired temperature. This means that it doesn’t need as much energy and your monthly bills will be significantly lower.
  • An extended lifespan: When our Rapid City air conditioning maintenance specialists inspect your unit on a routine basis, we’ll be able to spot any minor issues in need of AC repairs before they become more costly and serious. In doing so, your unit will have a longer lifespan.
  • Less costly breakdowns: Believe it or not, many costly repairs are the result of smaller issues that were left unattended. When we inspect your AC during maintenance, we’ll be able to fix these smaller issues and prevent them from developing into more serious issues that require extensive and expensive repairs.

Our Maintenance Process

When our Rapid City air conditioning maintenance technicians arrive to assess your unit, we will perform a multi-point inspection.

At this time, we will also:

  • Inspect your ductwork to ensure there are no leaks or detachments
  • Ensure that your ductwork is free of any clogs or buildup
  • Assess the conditioning of your unit’s condenser
  • Ensure that your unit’s thermostat is properly calibrated
  • Check coolant levels
