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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least annually can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the McHenry summer, have the specialists at complete your annual air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be finished during a usual air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Inspect for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, recover any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, rather than unlawfully discharging it to the air.
  • Look for efficient airflow in the system.
  • Check the correct electric control sequence to guarantee proper sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Inspect 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 make sure that your air conditioner continues to operate at peak efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it regularly. We recommend checking it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual factors in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
