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

Having routine air conditioning service completed at least annually can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at top efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Redford summer, have the professionals at Airtronic Heating & Cooling perform your routine air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be done during a usual air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your specialist 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, recover any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, as opposed to illicitly discharging it to the atmosphere.
  • Look for efficient airflow through the system.
  • Check the appropriate electric control sequence to guarantee proper sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Look for the precision 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 simple can help ensure your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it frequently. We suggest looking at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will bank on individual factors in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
