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

Having regular air conditioning service completed at least annually can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at peak efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Wharton summer, 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 proper amount of refrigerant, and if needed, test for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, as opposed to illicitly discharging it to the air.
  • Look for efficient airflow through the system.
  • Verify the correct electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Inspect the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters regularly is essential. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help ensure your air conditioner continues to operate at peak efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it habitually. We suggest looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. 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.

If it’s time for your routine air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another component of air conditioner maintenance, call Faust Air Conditioning and Heating today at 979-323-6130.
