How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having standard air conditioning service performed at least yearly can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at peak efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Hattiesburg summertime, have the professionals at Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning complete your annual air conditioning service. Some tasks should always be completed during a proper air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your technician should always: Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if needed, test for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than unlawfully discharging it to the air. Check for proper airflow throughout the system. Check the appropriate electric control sequence to guarantee proper sequence of operation. Examine electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections. Look for the exactness of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters frequently is essential. That’s because nothing else that easy can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it regularly. We suggest checking it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual influences in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
