How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having routine air conditioning service performed at least annually can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at top efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Lexington season, have the specialists at James Heating & A/C, Inc complete your routine air conditioning service. Particular tasks should always be completed during a proper air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your technician should always: Inspect for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if needed, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, recover any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, instead of illegally releasing it to the air. Look for efficient airflow throughout the system. Confirm the right electric control sequence to guarantee adequate sequence of operation. Inspect electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections. Look for the exactness of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters frequently 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 replaced during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it regularly. We suggest checking it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
