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

Having routine air conditioning service performed at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Litchfield Park season, have the experts at Cooler Tymes LLC complete your routine air conditioning service.

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

  • Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of unlawfully discharging it to the air.
  • Check for correct airflow in the system.
  • Confirm the correct electric control sequence to make sure of adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Check the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters routinely is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that simple can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We recommend taking a look at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will depend on individual influences in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
