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

Having routine air conditioning service performed 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 Plover summer, have the professionals at Point Heating & Cooling perform your yearly air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be completed during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Check for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if needed, test for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, as opposed to unlawfully freeing it to the air.
  • Inspect for proper airflow through the system.
  • Verify the correct electric control sequence to make sure of adequate sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Look for the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters frequently is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help ensure your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it regularly. We suggest taking a look at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
