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

Having routine air conditioning service performed at least once a year can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Dresden season, have the specialists at McFadden Heating & Cooling complete your annual air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be completed during a proper air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Inspect for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, rather than unlawfully releasing it to the air.
  • Look for efficient airflow through the system.
  • Verify the correct electric control sequence to ensure correct sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Check the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters routinely is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help ensure your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it habitually. We suggest checking it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will depend on individual factors in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
