How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done?

Having routine air conditioning service done at least annually can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at top efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Hickory season, have the specialists at Climate Control Systems complete your yearly air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be completed during a usual air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, examine for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, recover any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, as opposed to illegally releasing it to the atmosphere.
  • Look for efficient airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the correct electric control sequence to guarantee adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Look for the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters regularly is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help ensure your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it frequently. We recommend checking it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will bank on individual influences in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
