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 functioning at peak efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Florissant summer, have the professionals at B & B Heating & Cooling perform your yearly air conditioning service.

Certain 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 releasing it to the environment.
  • Look for efficient airflow in the system.
  • Verify the correct electric control sequence to guarantee proper sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Inspect the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters routinely is essential. That’s because nothing else that simple can help ensure your air conditioner continues to operate at top efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We suggest taking a look 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.

If it’s time for your annual air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another element of air conditioner maintenance, call B & B Heating & Cooling today at 314-325-7552.
