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

Having regular air conditioning service performed at least annually can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at top efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Circleville season, have the specialists at Stephen Hurst Pack Heating and Cooling, Inc. complete your annual air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be done during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if required, examine for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than illicitly discharging it to the atmosphere.
  • Inspect for efficient airflow in the system.
  • Verify the correct electric control sequence to make sure of adequate sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Look for the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters routinely is essential. That’s because nothing else that easy can help ensure your air conditioner continues to operate 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 looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will bank on individual factors in your home, like how much dust gets 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 aspect of air conditioner maintenance, call Stephen Hurst Pack Heating and Cooling, Inc. today at 740-474-5940.
