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

Having regular air conditioning service done at least yearly can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at top efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Utica summer, have the professionals at Main Heating & Cooling, Inc. complete your yearly air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be finished during a proper air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Check for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, look for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, recover any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, as opposed to illicitly freeing it to the atmosphere.
  • Look for correct airflow through the system.
  • Confirm the correct electric control sequence to make sure of adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Look for the exactness 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 ensure your air conditioner continues to run at peak efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it habitually. We recommend looking at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will depend on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
