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 functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Elmhurst season, have the experts at Alan Energy Services Air Conditioning and Heating Company complete your yearly air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be done during a usual air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Look for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than illegally releasing it to the atmosphere.
  • Check for correct airflow through the system.
  • Check the correct electric control sequence to make sure of adequate sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Inspect the precision 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 easy can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to work at peak efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your yearly 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 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.
