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

Having routine air conditioning service done at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at peak efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Moline season, have the specialists at J.L. Brady Company LLC perform your routine air conditioning service.

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

  • Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if required, examine for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, retrieve any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, as opposed to illegally discharging it to the air.
  • Look for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the right electric control sequence to ensure correct sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Look for the precision 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 simple can help ensure your air conditioner continues to operate at a high level of efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it regularly. We advise looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual influences in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
