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

Having routine air conditioning service done at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Moline summer, have the professionals at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning perform your annual air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be completed during a proper air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Inspect for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if required, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, recover any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, rather than illicitly discharging it to the environment.
  • Check for proper airflow in the system.
  • Confirm the correct electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Check the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters regularly is essential. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to run at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it regularly. We recommend taking a look at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will depend on individual influences in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
