How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having regular air conditioning service done at least yearly can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at peak efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Longview summertime, have the experts at Ben Maines Air Conditioning, Inc. perform your routine air conditioning service. Some tasks should always be completed during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your expert should always: Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if needed, look for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, recover any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of illicitly discharging it to the environment. Look for proper airflow throughout the system. Check the appropriate electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation. Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections. Check the accuracy of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters routinely is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that simple can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to run at peak efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We recommend taking a look at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will depend on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
