How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having routine air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at peak efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Ridgedale and the Branson area season, have the professionals at Branson HVAC, LLC complete your yearly air conditioning service. Particular tasks should always be finished during a usual air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your technician should always: Look for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, examine for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of illegally releasing it to the atmosphere. Inspect for correct airflow through the system. Verify the correct electric control sequence to make sure of adequate sequence of operation. Review electric terminals, clean and tighten connections. Look for the accuracy of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters routinely is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that easy can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to run at a high level of efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it habitually. We suggest checking it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual factors in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
