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

Cooling

Having regular air conditioning service done at least yearly can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at peak efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Marshfield summer, have the professionals at House of Heating Incorporated complete your annual air conditioning service.

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

  • Check for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, recover any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, as opposed to illicitly freeing it to the environment.
  • Inspect for efficient airflow in the system.
  • Check the right electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Check the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters frequently is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that simple can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to operate at peak efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it frequently. We suggest looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will bank on individual factors in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.

If it’s time for your routine air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another component of air conditioner maintenance, call House of Heating Incorporated today at 888-384-3163.
