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

Having regular air conditioning service completed at least yearly 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 Excelsior Springs summer, have the experts at Colvin's Inc complete your yearly air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be finished during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if needed, test for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, recover any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, instead of illicitly freeing it to the atmosphere.
  • Check for proper airflow in the system.
  • Verify the correct electric control sequence to guarantee adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Check the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters regularly is on the top of the list. 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 replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it frequently. We advise looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually requires 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.
