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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least yearly 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 Heflin season, have the specialists at Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc perform your annual air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be completed during a usual air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Inspect for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, examine for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, reclaim any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, rather than illicitly freeing it to the atmosphere.
  • Check for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the correct electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Inspect the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters frequently is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that simple can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to run at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it regularly. We recommend 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 factors in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.

If it’s time for your annual air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another aspect of air conditioner maintenance, call Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc today at 256-270-1196.
