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

Having standard air conditioning service performed at least annually can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Murrieta summer, have the professionals at Cool Air Solutions conduct your routine air conditioning service.

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

  • Check for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, look for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of illegally freeing it to the air.
  • Check for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Confirm the appropriate electric control sequence to ensure adequate 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, replacing or cleaning your air filters regularly is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that easy can help ensure your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it regularly. We advise taking a look at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will depend on individual factors in your home, like how much dust comes into 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 Cool Air Solutions today at 951-299-9853.
