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

Having routine 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 hottest days of the Marshfield summertime, 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 proper amount of refrigerant, and if needed, examine for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, as opposed to illicitly freeing it to the environment.
  • Inspect for efficient airflow in the system.
  • Check the correct electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Check the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing 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. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it frequently. We suggest taking a look 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 enters 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 aspect of air conditioner maintenance, call House of Heating Incorporated today at 715-384-3163.
