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

Having regular air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at top efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Chadron summertime, have the professionals at MPC Heating & Cooling conduct your yearly air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be done during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, reclaim any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of unlawfully discharging it to the atmosphere.
  • Look for efficient airflow through the system.
  • Verify the correct electric control sequence to ensure correct sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Inspect the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters regularly is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that simple can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it habitually. We advise taking a look at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual factors in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
