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

Having regular air conditioning service completed 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 summer, have the professionals at US Air Heating and Cooling perform your annual air conditioning service.

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

  • Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if needed, examine for refrigerant leaks using 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 make sure of 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, replacing or cleaning your air filters regularly is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to operate at peak efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it habitually. We suggest taking a look at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual factors in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.

If it’s time for your annual air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another component of air conditioner maintenance, call US Air Heating and Cooling today at 803-220-0761.
