How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having standard air conditioning service performed at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Raceland summer, have the specialists at Guidry's Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Service complete your annual air conditioning service. Certain tasks should always be completed during a usual air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your specialist should always: Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than illicitly releasing it to the environment. Look for correct airflow throughout the system. Check the appropriate electric control sequence to make sure of adequate sequence of operation. Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections. Look for the accuracy of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters routinely is essential. That’s because nothing else that simple can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to operate at a high level of efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We suggest looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will depend on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
