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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the New Castle summer, have the specialists at Central Heating & Plumbing perform your routine air conditioning service.

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

  • Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if required, test for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, recover any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, rather than unlawfully discharging it to the air.
  • Look for proper airflow in the system.
  • Check the right electric control sequence to make sure of proper sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen 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 simple can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it regularly. We suggest checking it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will depend on individual factors in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
