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

Having regular air conditioning service performed at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at top efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Safford summer, have the experts at B&D Air Conditioning conduct your routine air conditioning service.

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

  • Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if needed, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, as opposed to illicitly freeing it to the environment.
  • Check for correct airflow in the system.
  • Verify the right electric control sequence to make sure of proper sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Inspect 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 work at peak efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it habitually. We advise taking a look at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will bank on individual factors in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.

If it’s time for your annual air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another aspect of air conditioner maintenance, call B&D Air Conditioning today at 928-432-6018.
