How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having regular air conditioning service performed at least annually can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at top efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Odessa season, have the experts at Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning conduct your routine air conditioning service. Some tasks should always be completed during a usual air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your expert should always: Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, test for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than unlawfully discharging it to the atmosphere. Look for correct airflow throughout the system. Confirm the correct electric control sequence to guarantee adequate sequence of operation. Examine electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections. Check the accuracy of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters routinely is essential. That’s because nothing else that simple can help ensure your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We suggest looking at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
