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

Having regular air conditioning service performed at least annually can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Madera summertime, have the experts at Brian’s Heating & Cooling, Inc. complete your yearly air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be done during a usual air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Check for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, recover any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, instead of illegally freeing it to the atmosphere.
  • Inspect for proper airflow in the system.
  • Confirm the appropriate electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Check 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 straightforward can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to operate at peak efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it frequently. We advise checking it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will depend on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
