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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least annually can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Bloomfield summertime, have the specialists at Stanford Heating & Cooling complete your yearly air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be completed during a proper air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Check for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if required, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, recover any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, instead of unlawfully freeing it to the environment.
  • Look for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to make sure of adequate sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Check the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters routinely is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help ensure your air conditioner continues to operate at peak efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it habitually. We advise looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual influences in your home, like how much dust comes 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 component of air conditioner maintenance, call Stanford Heating & Cooling today at 812-825-8695.
