How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having routine air conditioning service completed at least yearly can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at top efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Augusta summer, have the professionals at Sig Cox Heating and Air Conditioning conduct your routine air conditioning service. Certain tasks should always be done during a usual air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your expert should always: Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, test for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, instead of illicitly freeing it to the atmosphere. Check for efficient airflow through the system. Check the right electric control sequence to guarantee proper sequence of operation. Review electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections. Look for the precision of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters frequently 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 routine air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it frequently. We recommend looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will depend on individual factors in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
