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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at top efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Huntsville summer, have the specialists at All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc 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 proper amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, recover any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, instead of illicitly freeing it to the environment.
  • Inspect for correct airflow through the system.
  • Check the right electric control sequence to make sure of correct sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Look for the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters regularly is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that easy can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to operate at top efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it habitually. We suggest checking it every month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will bank 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 routine air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another aspect of air conditioner maintenance, call All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc today at 256-801-4701.
