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

Having routine 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 summertime, have the specialists at Gillman Heating and Air conduct 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:

  • Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than illegally discharging it to the air.
  • Inspect for proper airflow in the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to guarantee adequate sequence of operation.
  • Review 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 run at a high level of efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We recommend checking it every month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. 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 regular air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another component of air conditioner maintenance, call Gillman Heating and Air today at 478-202-3076.
