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

Cooling

Having routine air conditioning service done at least annually can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at peak efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Westminster summer, have the specialists at True Heating & Cooling complete your annual air conditioning service.

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

  • Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, instead of illegally freeing it to the environment.
  • Check for correct airflow throughout the system.
  • Check the appropriate electric control sequence to guarantee proper sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Check the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters frequently is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that simple can help ensure your air conditioner continues to run at peak efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it regularly. We advise looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
