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

Having routine 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 summertime, have the specialists at Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning conduct your annual air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be finished during a usual air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if needed, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than illegally freeing it to the air.
  • Look for efficient airflow in the system.
  • Check the correct electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Check the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters routinely is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to operate at a high level of 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 taking a look at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual influences in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.

If it’s time for your regular 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.
