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

Having regular air conditioning service performed at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Derby summer, have the experts at Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning perform your annual air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be completed during a proper air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Inspect for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, rather than illicitly discharging it to the air.
  • Look for efficient airflow through the system.
  • Check the right electric control sequence to make sure of adequate sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Look for the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters routinely is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that simple can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to run at top efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We advise taking a look at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will bank on individual influences in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
