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

Having standard air conditioning service performed at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at top efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Holdrege season, have the specialists at Durable Service perform your routine air conditioning service.

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

  • Look for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if needed, look for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of unlawfully releasing it to the environment.
  • Inspect for efficient airflow through the system.
  • Verify the correct electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Inspect the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters regularly is essential. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help ensure your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should check it regularly. We recommend taking a look at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will depend on individual factors in your home, like how much dust gets into 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 element of air conditioner maintenance, call Durable Service today at 308-995-8177.
