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

Having regular air conditioning service done at least once a year can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Kearney summer, have the specialists at Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning conduct your yearly air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be completed during a proper air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, look for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, recover any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than illegally releasing it to the air.
  • Look for efficient airflow in the system.
  • Check the correct electric control sequence to make sure of adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Inspect the exactness 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 straightforward can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to run at peak efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it frequently. We advise looking at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually needs 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 element of air conditioner maintenance, call Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning today at 308-624-3485.
