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

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

  • Look 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, rather than illicitly discharging it to the atmosphere.
  • Check for efficient airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Inspect the precision 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 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 regularly. We advise checking it every month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will depend on individual factors in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
