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 peak efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Lawrence summertime, have the specialists at Scott Temperature complete your routine air conditioning service.

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

  • Check for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if needed, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than unlawfully freeing it to the air.
  • Look for proper 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 accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing 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 replaced during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We advise checking it every month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. 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.

If it’s time for your routine air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another element of air conditioner maintenance, call Scott Temperature today at 785-269-0465.
