How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having standard air conditioning service performed at least once a year can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the West Valley summertime, have the experts at Select Comfort System Heating & Air Conditioning conduct your yearly air conditioning service. Some tasks should always be completed during a usual air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your technician should always: Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if needed, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, instead of illegally freeing it to the atmosphere. Look for efficient airflow through the system. Confirm the right electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation. Review electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections. Inspect the accuracy of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters regularly is essential. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to run at peak efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it habitually. We advise checking it every month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will depend on individual factors in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
