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

Having standard air conditioning service performed at least annually can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Carlsbad season, have the specialists at Banister's Heating & Air Conditioning Services 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:

  • Inspect for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, recover any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, rather than illegally freeing it to the environment.
  • Inspect for correct airflow in the system.
  • Confirm the right electric control sequence to make sure of correct sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Look for the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters frequently is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to operate at a high level of efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it regularly. We recommend 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 factors in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
