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

Having routine air conditioning service completed at least annually can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at peak efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Manassas summer, have the professionals at Air-Right Energy Design, Inc. complete your yearly air conditioning service.

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

  • Check for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if required, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, recover any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than illegally discharging it to the environment.
  • Look for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Confirm the right electric control sequence to guarantee proper sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Look for the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters frequently is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that easy can help ensure your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it regularly. We advise taking a look at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will bank on individual influences in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
