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

Cooling

Having regular air conditioning service done at least annually can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at top efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Lake Forest season, have the professionals at 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. complete your annual air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be finished during a proper air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, reclaim any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of illicitly freeing it to the environment.
  • Check for efficient airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the correct electric control sequence to ensure correct sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Inspect the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters routinely is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that easy can help ensure your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it frequently. We suggest taking a look at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. 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.
