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

Having routine air conditioning service performed at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at peak efficiency. Before we get to the hottest 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:

  • Check for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if required, examine for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, recover any refrigerant that must be evacuated 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 ensure proper sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Check the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters regularly is essential. That’s because nothing else that easy can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to work at peak efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it frequently. We suggest taking a look at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will depend 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 component of air conditioner maintenance, call Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces today at 308-646-3827.
