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

Having standard air conditioning service performed at least annually can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Liberty and the Kansas City Metro Area summer, have the professionals at Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling perform your annual air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be completed during a proper air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if needed, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, reclaim any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, as opposed to illicitly freeing it to the air.
  • Inspect for efficient airflow in the system.
  • Check the correct electric control sequence to ensure proper sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Check the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out 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 work at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it frequently. We suggest looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will depend on individual factors in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
