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

Having regular air conditioning service performed at least yearly can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at peak efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Rocky Mount summertime, have the specialists at Davis Heating & Air Conditioning perform your routine air conditioning service.

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

  • Look for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, instead of illicitly freeing it to the environment.
  • Check for correct airflow in the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Look for the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters regularly is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that simple can help ensure your air conditioner continues to work at peak efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it frequently. We advise taking a look at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will depend on individual factors 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 element of air conditioner maintenance, call Davis Heating & Air Conditioning today at 540-369-3790.
