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

Having regular air conditioning service done at least once a year can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Perry summer, have the specialists at Gillman Heating and Air perform your yearly air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be done during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, look for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, recover any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than unlawfully discharging it to the air.
  • Inspect for proper airflow in the system.
  • Confirm the appropriate electric control sequence to guarantee adequate sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Look for the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters routinely is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that simple can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to operate at peak efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it regularly. We recommend checking it every month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will depend on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust enters 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 aspect of air conditioner maintenance, call Gillman Heating and Air today at 478-202-3076.
