How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having standard air conditioning service done at least once a year 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 West Palm Beach season, have the professionals at Hopkins Air Conditioning, Inc. conduct your annual air conditioning service. Some tasks should always be completed during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your expert should always: Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, recover any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of illegally discharging it to the air. Inspect for efficient airflow in the system. Confirm the appropriate electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation. Review electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections. Look for the exactness of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters routinely is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that simple can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to run at top efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We advise looking at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually needs 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.
