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

Having routine air conditioning service done 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 hottest days of the Moline summertime, have the experts at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning perform your yearly air conditioning service.

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

  • Inspect for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if required, test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, instead of illicitly discharging it to the environment.
  • Check for proper airflow in the system.
  • Verify the right electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Inspect the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters routinely is essential. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to operate at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your annual 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 be dependent on individual factors in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
