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

Having regular air conditioning service done at least yearly can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the South Beloit and Belvidere season, have the specialists at Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. conduct your annual air conditioning service.

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

  • Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if needed, examine for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, recover any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, instead of illicitly discharging it to the air.
  • Look for efficient airflow through the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Inspect the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters regularly is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that easy can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We recommend checking it every month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually requires 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.
