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

Having regular air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at top efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Alice season, have the specialists at Rescue Heating & Air conduct your yearly air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be completed during a usual air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Inspect for the proper 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 evacuated from the system, rather than illegally releasing it to the air.
  • Inspect for efficient airflow throughout the system.
  • Check the appropriate electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and strengthen 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 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 check it regularly. We advise looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually demands 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.

If it’s time for your annual 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.
