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

Cooling

Having standard air conditioning service done at least yearly can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at peak efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Winchester season, have the specialists at Thornberry Bros Inc perform your annual air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be done during a usual air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Check for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, instead of illicitly releasing it to the atmosphere.
  • Inspect for correct airflow throughout the system.
  • Confirm the correct electric control sequence to guarantee proper sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Look for the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters regularly is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that simple can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to operate at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it habitually. We recommend looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually requires 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.
