How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having regular air conditioning service performed at least once a year can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at top efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Colorado Springs summertime, have the experts at Mitchell Heating complete your yearly air conditioning service. Particular tasks should always be finished during a proper air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your specialist should always: Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, recover any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, as opposed to illegally freeing it to the environment. Look for efficient airflow through the system. Verify the correct electric control sequence to ensure correct sequence of operation. Inspect electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections. Look for the accuracy of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters regularly is essential. That’s because nothing else that easy can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We recommend looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. 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.
