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 running at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Plainfield summer, have the professionals at PWA Heating & Cooling Inc complete your annual air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be completed during a usual air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if needed, examine for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, retrieve any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, instead of illegally freeing it to the air.
  • Look for correct airflow throughout the system.
  • Check the correct electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Inspect the accuracy 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 simple can help ensure your air conditioner continues to operate at peak efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it habitually. We recommend checking it every month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will depend on individual influences in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
