How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having standard air conditioning service performed at least once a year can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at top efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Macon summer, have the professionals at Air Temperature Control complete your annual air conditioning service. Particular tasks should always be completed during a usual air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your technician should always: Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if needed, test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, as opposed to illicitly freeing it to the environment. Inspect for efficient airflow throughout the system. Confirm the appropriate electric control sequence to make sure of proper sequence of operation. Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections. Check the accuracy of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters routinely is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that easy can help ensure 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 regularly. We recommend taking a look at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually requires 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.
