When Do I Service My A/C system?

Feeling Fiery in Florida

That's right; you know what time it is. Florida is hot (again), but even hotter than last time! Now is the time to make sure your A/C system has the juice to cool you down. Have you had your A/C system serviced this year? Well, if you haven't, here's some information on things to look out for and what you can do to prepare for summer!


Your A/C system is a complicated network of physical components and electrical engineering. Between the compressor, radiator, fans, and freon, all sorts of things might need attention. The longer things go neglected, the worse the problems get.

When do I service my A/C system?

We generally recommend that you service your A/C system two times throughout the year. Once just before winter and once just before summer, there is some wiggle room on the months, but this is a general rule of thumb. Because Florida doesn't experience any really cold months, it might be even more important to make sure your A/C system keeps you cool year-round.

How do I know if I have a problem with my A/C system?

A/C systems are pretty simple in this regard. They aren't like some other complicated systems where you can't really pinpoint what is wrong simply based on sounds. A/C systems will give you a couple of telltale signs that let you know, "something is definitely wrong with my A/C system!"

Signs that your A/C system needs servicing

Look and listen for some of these telltale signs that your A/C system needs some attention:

  • It only blows hot air

  • It only blows ambient temperature air

  • It makes sounds under the hood when you turn it on

  • It blows debris through the air conditioning vents

  • It doesn't blow when the vehicle is stationary

  • It won't turn on at all

If you notice any of these issues, it is time to bring your vehicle in for an A/C service. Find a trusted auto repair center, and let them know what you're experiencing. A/C problems are extremely common, and they should be able to have you back on the road in no time; cooler than last time!
