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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least annually can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at peak efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Macon summertime, have the professionals at Air Temperature Control complete your yearly air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be completed during a proper air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if needed, examine for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, recover any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, as opposed to illicitly freeing it to the environment.
  • Inspect for efficient airflow through the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Inspect the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters regularly is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that easy can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We recommend taking a look at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will depend on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust enters 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 Air Temperature Control today at 478-202-3170.
