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

Having routine air conditioning service performed at least yearly can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at top efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Savage season, have the professionals at Gopher Heating and Air Conditioning perform your yearly air conditioning service.

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

  • Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if required, examine for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, reclaim any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, rather than illegally discharging it to the air.
  • Inspect for correct airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the right electric control sequence to ensure correct sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Check the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters regularly is essential. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help ensure your air conditioner continues to run at peak efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it regularly. We suggest checking it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will depend on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
