How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having routine air conditioning service completed at least annually can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at top efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Wharton summertime, have the experts at Faust Air Conditioning and Heating conduct your routine air conditioning service. Particular tasks should always be completed during a proper air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your expert should always: Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if needed, test for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, reclaim any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, as opposed to illicitly discharging it to the atmosphere. Look for efficient airflow through the system. Confirm the right electric control sequence to ensure proper sequence of operation. Examine electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections. Check the exactness of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters routinely is essential. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to operate at a high level of efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it habitually. We suggest looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual factors in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
