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

Having standard air conditioning service performed at least yearly can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at top efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Crystal Lake summertime, have the specialists at Campbell's Tempracure complete your yearly air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be done during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if needed, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, instead of unlawfully releasing it to the air.
  • Look for correct airflow in the system.
  • Check the right electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Check the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters regularly is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that easy can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it regularly. We advise checking it every month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will depend on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
