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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Aurora summertime, have the specialists at Service Plus Mechanical complete your yearly air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be done during a usual air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, reclaim any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, as opposed to illicitly releasing it to the air.
  • Inspect for correct airflow in the system.
  • Confirm the appropriate electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Inspect the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters frequently is essential. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We advise looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will depend on individual influences in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
