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

Cooling

Having regular air conditioning service performed at least annually can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Rock Hill summertime, have the professionals at US Air Heating and Cooling perform your annual air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be finished during a proper air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Inspect for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, test for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, reclaim any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of unlawfully discharging it to the environment.
  • Check for efficient airflow in the system.
  • Check the right electric control sequence to ensure proper sequence of operation.
  • Inspect 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 routinely is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to run at a high level of efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it habitually. We suggest looking at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. 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.
