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

Having standard air conditioning service performed at least yearly can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at top efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Hendersonville summertime, have the professionals at Superior Comfort Systems perform your routine air conditioning service.

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

  • Check for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, recover any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, rather than illicitly discharging it to the atmosphere.
  • Look for correct airflow throughout the system.
  • Confirm the appropriate electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Check the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters routinely is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it frequently. We recommend checking it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually demands 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.
