Air Conditioner Maintenance in Maryland
A central air conditioning system is a significant investment to your home and is one of the best ways to provide whole-home comfort for you and your family. Maryland residents can expect their air conditioner to have an average life span of approximately 15–20 years, but with regular tune-ups and maintenance, your air conditioning unit can last well beyond 20 years.
At GAC Services, we can perform an annual AC maintenance tune-up—preferably in the spring before the cooling season starts when you’ll rely on your system the most. We’ve provided the Montgomery, Frederick, and Howard county areas with cooling services since 1970, so you know you’re receiving the best possible air conditioner tune-up around!

What’s Included in Our AC Tune-Up?
Your air conditioner is a complicated machine with hundreds of moving parts. In order to effectively cool your home year after year, we recommend scheduling an annual tune-up. During our standard tune-up, one of our NATE-certified HVAC technicians will:
- Lubricate and/or tighten necessary parts and connections
- Clean or replace your air filter as needed
- Inspect and test major AC components, such as blower motor, indoor and outdoor coils, compressor, condenser, evaporator, thermostat, etc.
- Check for refrigerant leaks
- Check for fluid leakage indoors

Is AC Maintenance Necessary?
To put it simply, yes, it’s quite necessary. You seek maintenance for a car to make it last longer, work better, and to avoid a breakdown, right? Well you should look for AC maintenance in Maryland for all of the same reasons, plus a bit more. You want your system to be strong, you want it to be reliable, and you want to protect the expensive investment that it is. And to do that? Maintenance is vital.
Beyond that, maintenance is even a part of most modern warranties, requiring you to get routine service in order to stay within the parameters of the warranty. So not only are you protecting the system itself, you’re protecting your ability to stay covered, too!
Scheduling an AC tune-up can also help you answer the following questions you may have:
- Why does my air conditioner make a loud noise when it runs?
- Why is my air conditioner leaking?
- Why is warm air being coming from my registers?
- Why are my energy bills so high?
- Is my air conditioner working as efficiently as it should?
- Why does my AC smell when it runs?
- And more
Benefits of Air Conditioner Maintenance
Beyond why and how maintenance is necessary, it also brings in a lot of benefits to your Maryland home. And as well all know, what you stand to gain is what’s really important! When you choose maintenance services from GAC Services, you can expect to gain:
- A longer cooling system life span. General use and wear tends to cap the life expectancy of a cooling system at ten to fifteen years. But when you get proper maintenance on a consistent basis, you can expect to get many, many more years of your cooling system.
- Repair and breakdown prevention. Maintenance services address many of the most common causes of a system breakdown, helping to reduce the risks of warm air, poor air flow and quality, and even slowing the degradation of moving components.
- Lower overall repair costs. A complete diagnosis of your system is part of a routine maintenance check, and gives our HVAC experts the opportunity to locate and address any troublesome issues early on. This means when you do need repair, it’s far less likely to be due to the more expensive problems like condenser or compressor failure.
- Higher cooling efficiency. And the best benefit yet—your cooling system will just do a better job overall! You’ll get tons more comfort and quality cooling, and you’ll even get it a lower cost.

Frequently Asked Questions
