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

Having standard air conditioning service performed at least yearly can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at peak efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Hattiesburg summertime, have the experts at Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning complete your annual air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be finished during a proper air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Check for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if needed, examine for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, instead of illegally discharging it to the air.
  • Look 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 simple can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to work at peak efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We suggest checking it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will depend on individual factors in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.

If it’s time for your regular air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another aspect of air conditioner maintenance, call Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning today at 601-292-9763.
