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

Cooling

Having standard air conditioning service done at least yearly can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at peak efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Huffman season, have the professionals at Air Houston Mechanical LLC conduct your yearly air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be finished during a proper air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Inspect for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if needed, examine for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, reclaim any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of unlawfully releasing it to the environment.
  • Look for correct airflow in the system.
  • Check the appropriate electric control sequence to ensure correct sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Look for the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters routinely is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that easy can help ensure your air conditioner continues to operate at top efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it frequently. We advise looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.

If it’s time for your regular air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another aspect of air conditioner maintenance, call Air Houston Mechanical LLC today at 832-777-1521.
