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

Having regular air conditioning service performed at least annually can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at top efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Paso Robles summertime, have the specialists at Paso Robles Heating and Air complete your yearly air conditioning service.

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

  • Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, retrieve any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, as opposed to illegally freeing it to the air.
  • Inspect for efficient airflow through the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to guarantee adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Check the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters regularly is essential. That’s because nothing else that simple can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to operate at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it regularly. We recommend checking it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will depend on individual influences in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
