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

Cooling

Having standard air conditioning service done at least once a year can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at peak efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Mobile summer, have the specialists at Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc complete your routine air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be finished during a proper air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Look for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, look for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, recover any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, rather than illicitly discharging it to the environment.
  • Inspect for correct airflow through the system.
  • Check the right electric control sequence to guarantee adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Look for the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters routinely is essential. That’s because nothing else that easy can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to work at peak efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it regularly. We suggest looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will bank on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
