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

Having regular air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at top efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Alliance season, have the experts at Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces complete your routine air conditioning service.

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

  • Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if required, test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, as opposed to illicitly freeing it to the environment.
  • Check for efficient airflow in the system.
  • Verify the right electric control sequence to make sure of adequate sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Check the precision 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 easy can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it frequently. We suggest looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual influences 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 Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces today at 308-646-3827.
