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

Having regular air conditioning service completed at least once a year 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 perform your routine air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be finished 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 using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, retrieve any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than illegally discharging it to the air.
  • Check for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the correct electric control sequence to guarantee adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Check the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters regularly is essential. That’s because nothing else that easy can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. Outside of 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 recommendation. 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.
