How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having standard air conditioning service done at least annually can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at peak efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Crestview summer, have the professionals at Gordon Air Conditioning perform your yearly air conditioning service. Particular tasks should always be completed during a proper air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your technician should always: Inspect for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, rather than illicitly freeing it to the atmosphere. Inspect for correct airflow through the system. Verify the right electric control sequence to ensure correct sequence of operation. Review electric terminals, clean and tighten connections. Inspect the accuracy of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters routinely is essential. That’s because nothing else that simple can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to operate at top efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We suggest taking a look at it every 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.
