How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having regular air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Pinellas County season, have the professionals at Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc perform your routine air conditioning service. Certain tasks should always be completed during a proper air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your technician should always: Check for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if needed, test for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, instead of illegally freeing it to the environment. Check for efficient airflow in the system. Confirm the correct electric control sequence to make sure of proper sequence of operation. Examine electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections. Check the accuracy of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters regularly is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it regularly. We suggest looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will bank on individual factors in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
