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

Having regular air conditioning service performed at least annually can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Abilene season, have the professionals at Abilene Air-Tech Inc perform your routine air conditioning service.

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

  • Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if needed, test for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than illegally discharging it to the atmosphere.
  • Inspect for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the right electric control sequence to guarantee adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Look for the accuracy 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 straightforward can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to operate at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your yearly 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 advice. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual aspects 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 Abilene Air-Tech Inc today at 325-200-4667.
