How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having 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 warmest days of the Dallas summertime, have the specialists at Tri County Air Care LLC conduct your routine air conditioning service. Certain tasks should always be completed during a proper air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your specialist should always: Check for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, 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 throughout the system. Confirm the appropriate electric control sequence to ensure proper sequence of operation. Inspect electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections. Look for the precision of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters routinely is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that easy can help guarantee 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 inspect it regularly. We recommend looking 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 enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
