Ideally, no matter what kind of HVAC system you use, you should schedule service for it every year. This includes everything from central air conditioners to outdoor ones, and gas-powered furnaces to oil-powered ones.
The best times of the year for these inspections are the fall for your heating system and the spring for your air conditioning. That way, you can fix up any issues and prime your systems to get them ready for those seasons when you’re going to be relying on them the most.

What Is HVAC Service Anyway?
HVAC service is service performed by an HVAC technician wherein he will do such things as inspect your system, clean it out, test it, and make any necessary repairs or adjustments to keep it running at its maximum efficiency. The reason why professional HVAC service is necessary for most homeowners is because the technician goes above and beyond what you can do on your own.
To be fair, HVAC technicians often perform those services that most homeowners would rather not do, like clean the outdoor unit and ensure it’s free of any possible obstructions that could impact its performance. Why worry about this kind of thing when you can just hire someone to do it for you? Then you don’t have to get dirty or worry about whether you cleared your unit well enough that you don’t have to put all that effort in and still need to call a professional for help anyway.
Plus, if there are any parts that require replacing or tweaking, this may be something you would rather leave to a professional. And rather than schedule a separate service appointment to have these things taken care of, this is something the technician can just handle while he’s there, inspecting the unit anyway.
New or Like-New HVAC Systems
Truly, if you have a brand-new HVAC system, or a fairly new one, and you live in a moderate climate, then you can get away with annual service. However, if you live in the kind of climate where it’s hotter and you use your air conditioner more, or vice versa, then it’s actually smarter to have HVAC service performed every six months.
It only stands to reason: the more you use your system, the more debris it can build up, and the more parts can wear out over time. When you have a good HVAC technician keeping an eye on things, he can clean up your system and replace worn-out parts before you suffer a significant breakdown that puts you out of service entirely for a while until you get it fixed.
Older HVAC Systems
As for older HVAC systems, the older a system gets, the less efficient it becomes when compared to newer models out there. Plus, the older a system gets, the more attention it needs insofar as maintenance and repairs until it gets to the point where it’s cheaper to just buy new.
Therefore, the same idea that applies to well-worn newer systems applies to older systems as well, especially well-worn ones. Have your older HVAC system serviced every six months to ensure it’s running up to speed and can still keep up with the work you need it to perform. Once that system reaches 10 years old, though, you should definitely consider upgrading to a more energy-efficient model.
