How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having standard air conditioning service performed at least yearly can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Buellton season, have the professionals at Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning perform your routine air conditioning service. Particular tasks should always be finished during a proper air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your expert should always: Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if required, test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is required, recover any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, as opposed to illicitly releasing it to the atmosphere. Look for proper airflow through the system. Check the correct electric control sequence to make sure of correct sequence of operation. Review electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections. Check the accuracy of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters frequently is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that easy can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to work at peak efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it frequently. We suggest taking a look at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual influences in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
