How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having standard air conditioning service performed at least yearly can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at top efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Northwest Arkansas summertime, have the experts at AirTech Heating and Air Conditioning, LLC perform your routine air conditioning service. Particular tasks should always be finished during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your expert should always: Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if needed, test for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, rather than illicitly discharging it to the atmosphere. Look for efficient airflow throughout the system. Verify the correct electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation. Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections. Look for the accuracy of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters routinely is essential. That’s because nothing else that simple can help ensure your air conditioner continues to run at peak efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it habitually. We advise looking at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will depend on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
