How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having routine air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Middletown season, have the specialists at Schagrin Gas Company perform your routine air conditioning service. Certain tasks should always be completed during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your expert should always: Check for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, as opposed to illegally freeing it to the environment. Inspect for correct airflow through the system. Confirm the right electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation. Review electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections. Inspect the accuracy of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters routinely is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to work at peak efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it regularly. We recommend taking a look at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will bank on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
