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

Having standard air conditioning service performed at least yearly can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at peak efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Pacheco season, have the specialists at Clean Air HVAC complete your routine air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be finished during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, examine for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, rather than unlawfully freeing it to the environment.
  • Check for efficient airflow through the system.
  • Verify the right 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, swapping out or cleaning your air filters regularly is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help ensure your air conditioner continues to run at peak efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it regularly. We suggest looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual influences in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
