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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at peak 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.

Some tasks should always be completed during a proper air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Inspect for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if needed, 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 releasing it to the environment.
  • Inspect for correct airflow through the system.
  • Check the right electric control sequence to ensure correct sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Look for the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters routinely is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that simple can help ensure 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 recommendation. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will bank 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 routine air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another component of air conditioner maintenance, call All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc today at 256-801-4701.
