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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least yearly can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at top efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Wheeling summer, have the experts at Local HVAC Repair & Service conduct your routine air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be done during a usual air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, look for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of illicitly releasing it to the atmosphere.
  • Inspect for efficient airflow through the system.
  • Check the appropriate electric control sequence to guarantee adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Look for the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing 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 operate at peak efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it regularly. We suggest taking a look at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual factors in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.

If it’s time for your routine air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another element of air conditioner maintenance, call Local HVAC Repair & Service today at 224-300-4806.
