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

Having routine air conditioning service done at least once a year can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at peak efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Lawrence summer, have the specialists at Scott Temperature complete your routine air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be finished during a proper air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Check for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if needed, test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of illegally freeing it to the air.
  • Check for correct airflow in the system.
  • Check the correct electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Check the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters routinely is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to operate at a high level of efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it habitually. We recommend checking it every month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. 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.
