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

Having routine air conditioning service completed at least yearly can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at top efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Dallas summer, have the specialists at Air Patrol Air Conditioning & Heating of Texas conduct your annual air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be done during a usual air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Look for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, test for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, reclaim any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, instead of illegally freeing it to the air.
  • Check for correct airflow in the system.
  • Confirm the correct electric control sequence to make sure of adequate sequence of operation.
  • Review 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 regularly is essential. That’s because nothing else that easy can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to operate at peak efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it habitually. We suggest taking a look at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will depend on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
