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

Cooling

Having routine air conditioning service done at least yearly can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Saint Peters season, have the professionals at C-N-O Comfort Zone complete your yearly air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be done during a usual air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if needed, examine for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, retrieve any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than unlawfully releasing it to the air.
  • Look for correct airflow through the system.
  • Confirm the appropriate electric control sequence to make sure of adequate sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Look for the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters regularly is essential. That’s because nothing else that easy can help ensure your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We recommend checking it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
