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

Having routine air conditioning service performed at least once a year can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Tucker summertime, have the experts at ACS Heating and Air Conditioning conduct your routine air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be completed during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, test for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, instead of unlawfully discharging it to the air.
  • Check for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Check the right electric control sequence to guarantee proper sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Inspect the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters regularly is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that simple can help ensure your air conditioner continues to work at peak efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We suggest looking at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will bank on individual factors in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
