How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having standard air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Homer Glen summertime, have the experts at Pinnacle HVAC LLC conduct your annual air conditioning service. Certain tasks should always be finished during a proper air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your technician should always: Check for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if needed, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, recover any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, instead of illegally discharging it to the environment. Look for proper airflow in the system. Check the right electric control sequence to make sure of proper sequence of operation. Inspect 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 regularly is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that simple can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to operate at a high level of efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We suggest taking a look at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will depend on individual factors in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
