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

June 16, 2017

Having regular air conditioning service performed at least annually 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 SchagrinGAS Company conduct your routine air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be completed during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Look for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, look for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, recover any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, as opposed to illegally releasing it to the environment.
  • Inspect for correct airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify 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, 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 work at peak efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it regularly. We recommend taking a look at it monthly 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.
