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

Having routine air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at peak efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Safford summertime, have the professionals at B&D Air Conditioning conduct your routine air conditioning service.

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

  • Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if needed, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, as opposed to illicitly releasing it to the environment.
  • Check for correct airflow in the system.
  • Verify the right electric control sequence to make sure of adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Inspect the accuracy 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 a high level of efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it habitually. We recommend looking 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.
