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

Having regular air conditioning service done at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at top efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Lake Worth summertime, have the specialists at Smyth Air Conditioning Inc complete your yearly air conditioning service.

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

  • Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if required, test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, as opposed to unlawfully freeing it to the environment.
  • Inspect for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Confirm the correct electric control sequence to make sure of correct 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, changing or cleaning your air filters frequently is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that simple can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to run at top efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it habitually. We suggest taking a look at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will depend on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust comes 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 Smyth Air Conditioning Inc today at 561-533-6066 .
