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

Having standard air conditioning service done at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Hamilton summertime, have the professionals at Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC conduct your yearly air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be finished during a proper air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Inspect for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if needed, look for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, recover any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, as opposed to illicitly freeing it to the air.
  • Look for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Check the right electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Look for the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters frequently is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that easy can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it regularly. We advise taking a look at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will depend on individual influences in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
