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

Having routine air conditioning service done at least annually can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Ronkonkoma summertime, have the experts at Cool Power LLC complete your annual air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be done during a proper air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Inspect for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if needed, examine for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, as opposed to illegally freeing it to the air.
  • Check for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to make sure of correct sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Inspect the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters frequently is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that easy can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to operate at top efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We recommend looking at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will bank on individual influences in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
