At every 30k km, it is recommended to do a/c servicing. What usually
needs to be done (depending on car model), the receiver drier needs to be
changed and a chemical cleaning of the evaporator coil. If your car has a
cabin air filter, it is best to check or replace if needed.

BTW, what car is yours?

Hi. if you do not use your airconditiner every now and than the seals
will dry out and the gas will leak. Your airconditioner will not need any
maintenance at all except a regass every 3 years. If you use Auto LPG
(50% propabe and 50% butane) you can double the time between regasses and
it is much cheaper. And it works better.

air-con of course need regular maintenance. the compressor is a very
important part that need oiling. the air-con valve is also impact its
performance & I usually change it after X2 service or every 50,000km.
frequent cleaning is also suggested on air-con coil for those who drive
in dusty area.

Don't be penny wise pound folish!
