Air Conditioning Maintenance

Dependable Air Conditioning Maintenance for Johnson County & More

Neglecting air conditioning maintenance is a common mistake that can cost homeowners significantly in the long run. From constant repairs to the premature need for a replacement, the consequences of overlooking regular maintenance can be both frustrating and expensive. 

At Honest Abe’s Heating & Cooling, we’ve seen too many Central Indiana homeowners face these issues, all of which could have been avoided with regular care. It’s not just about preventing problems; it’s about ensuring your air conditioner continues to provide cool, refreshing air, no matter how hot it gets outside. 

Don’t wait for a breakdown; schedule your air conditioning maintenance with Honest Abe’s today.

What Maintenance Does an Air Conditioner Need?

Proper air conditioning maintenance is a blend of professional services and homeowner diligence. 

Here’s what you can tackle at home:

  • Change the air filter. This is like giving your AC a chance to breathe easily. Replace the filter every 1-3 months, depending on usage and pet dander levels.
  • Clean the outdoor unit. Gently remove any leaves, debris, or overgrown vegetation that might be blocking airflow around the unit. Use a garden hose to spray down the fins (avoid bending them!), but don’t use a pressure washer – that’s too harsh.
  • Keep indoor vents and the area around the unit clear. Make sure your vents aren’t blocked by any rugs or furniture and maintain at least two feet of clearance around the outdoor unit for optimal airflow.


Professionally, your AC needs periodic checks that include inspecting coolant levels, cleaning coils, checking the thermostat, and ensuring all electrical components are in top shape. Trusting these tasks to the certified professionals at Honest Abe’s ensures your system operates efficiently and lasts longer.

The golden rule is to have your air conditioner serviced at least once a year, typically in the spring before the heavy usage period begins. However, the type of system you have may dictate a slightly different approach. Central air conditioners, heat pumps, and ductless mini splits benefit most from annual maintenance, while window units might get by with a check every other year if they’re used less frequently. 

Remember, unusual noises, higher-than-normal energy bills, or diminished cooling capacity are all signs that it’s time to call in the professionals outside the regular schedule.
