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

Having standard air conditioning service performed at least yearly can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at top efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Florissant summer, have the experts at B & B Heating & Cooling perform your annual air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be done during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Check for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if required, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, recover any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, as opposed to illicitly freeing it to the environment.
  • Look for efficient airflow in the system.
  • Confirm the right electric control sequence to guarantee adequate sequence of operation.
  • Inspect 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 essential. That’s because nothing else that easy can help ensure your air conditioner continues to run at top efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We suggest looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will bank on individual factors in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
