How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having regular air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Santee season, have the specialists at Aireforce Heating & Air Inc complete your annual air conditioning service. Some tasks should always be done during a usual air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your specialist should always: Inspect for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is required, recover any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, rather than illegally releasing it to the environment. Look for proper airflow through the system. Check the correct electric control sequence to ensure proper sequence of operation. Review electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections. Inspect the precision of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters routinely is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to operate at peak efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it habitually. We recommend checking it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will bank on individual influences in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
