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

Having standard air conditioning service completed 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 usual air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Look for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if required, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, recover any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, as opposed to illicitly freeing it to the air.
  • Check for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Check the right electric control sequence to make sure of correct sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Inspect the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters frequently is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that easy can help ensure your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We suggest looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will depend on individual factors in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
