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

Having routine air conditioning service completed at least annually can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at peak efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Alice season, have the specialists at Rescue Heating & Air perform your yearly air conditioning service.

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

  • Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if needed, look for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, retrieve any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, instead of unlawfully freeing it to the atmosphere.
  • Inspect for efficient airflow through the system.
  • Check the appropriate electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Check the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters routinely is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that simple can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it regularly. We advise taking a look at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. 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.

If it’s time for your regular air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another aspect of air conditioner maintenance, call Rescue Heating & Air today at 361-265-4371.
