Before we get to the warmest days of the Crystal Lake summertime, have the specialists at Jett's Heating & Air Inc. complete your annual air conditioning service. Some tasks should always be finished during a usual air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your technician should always: Inspect for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, test for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, rather than illegally discharging it to the atmosphere. Check for efficient airflow in the system. Check the right electric control sequence to guarantee proper 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 regularly is essential. That’s because nothing else that simple can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to run at peak efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it regularly. We advise checking it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will depend on individual influences in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
