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

Cooling

Having standard air conditioning service done at least annually can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at top efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Greencastle summer, have the specialists at Premier HVAC Services LLC complete your annual air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be finished during a proper air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if needed, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, recover any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, rather than illicitly discharging it to the environment.
  • Check for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the correct electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Check the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters frequently is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that simple can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to operate at a high level of efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it regularly. We recommend looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
