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

Having 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 City summer, have the experts at Select Comfort System Heating & Air Conditioning perform your yearly air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be completed during a proper air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Check 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 unlawfully releasing it to the air.
  • Look for efficient airflow through the system.
  • Verify the correct electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Check the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters routinely is essential. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help ensure your air conditioner continues to operate 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 recommend checking it every month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual factors in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
