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

Having regular air conditioning service performed at least annually can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at top efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Selbyville summer, have the specialists at Red Dog Cooling, Heating, & Plumbing complete your annual air conditioning service.

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

  • Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if needed, examine for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, instead of illegally discharging it to the air.
  • Look for efficient airflow throughout the system.
  • Confirm the right electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Check the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing 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 a high level of efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it regularly. We advise looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual factors in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
