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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least yearly can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Plainfield summertime, have the experts at PWA Heating & Cooling Inc complete your annual air conditioning service.

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

  • Inspect for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, test for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, retrieve any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, rather than unlawfully releasing it to the atmosphere.
  • Check for proper airflow through the system.
  • Check the right electric control sequence to ensure proper 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 regularly is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that simple can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to run at peak efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it habitually. We advise checking it every month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual factors in your home, like how much dust enters 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 element of air conditioner maintenance, call PWA Heating & Cooling Inc today at 815-410-1231.
