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 Branchville summertime, have the experts at Willco Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Heating Inc. complete your yearly air conditioning service.

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

  • Inspect for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, as opposed to illegally discharging it to the atmosphere.
  • Look for correct airflow through the system.
  • Check the right electric control sequence to make sure of proper sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Inspect the precision 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 make sure that your air conditioner continues to operate at top 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 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 enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
