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

Having standard air conditioning service performed at least yearly can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at peak efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Greensburg summer, have the experts at Wallpe Heating & Cooling complete your annual air conditioning service.

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

  • Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if needed, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, recover any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, as opposed to illegally freeing it to the atmosphere.
  • Inspect for correct airflow through the system.
  • Confirm the correct electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Check the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters regularly is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that simple can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to operate at a high level of efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We advise looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. 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.
