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

Having routine air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at peak efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Zelienople summer, have the specialists at Knoechel Heating Company conduct your yearly air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be finished during a proper air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Check for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if required, 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 illegally releasing it to the environment.
  • Inspect for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to make sure of proper sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Check the exactness 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 easy can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to run at peak efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it habitually. We recommend looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual factors in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
