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

Having standard air conditioning service done at least annually can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at top efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Crestview summertime, have the experts at Gordon Air Conditioning perform your yearly air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be finished during a usual air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Inspect for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, test for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of illicitly freeing it to the atmosphere.
  • Inspect for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the correct electric control sequence to make sure of correct sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Check 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 easy can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to operate at top efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We suggest looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will bank on individual factors in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.

If it’s time for your annual air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another aspect of air conditioner maintenance, call Gordon Air Conditioning today at 850-250-0335.
