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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least annually can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at top efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Dallas summer, have the specialists at Tri County Air Care LLC perform your routine air conditioning service.

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

  • Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if needed, test for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, instead of illicitly discharging it to the atmosphere.
  • Check for efficient airflow through the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Look for the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters regularly is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that simple can help ensure your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it regularly. We advise taking a look at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will bank on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.

If it’s time for your routine air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another aspect of air conditioner maintenance, call Tri County Air Care LLC today at 469-213-8367.
