How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having regular air conditioning service done at least once a year can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Orange County summertime, have the professionals at Ocean Air Conditioning conduct your annual air conditioning service. Certain tasks should always be completed during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your specialist should always: Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, test for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, as opposed to illicitly freeing it to the atmosphere. Look for correct airflow in the system. Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to make sure of adequate sequence of operation. Inspect electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections. Look for the precision of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters regularly is essential. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to run at a high level of efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it regularly. We suggest taking a look at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will depend on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
