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

Having regular air conditioning service done at least annually can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at peak efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Lake Worth summer, have the specialists at Smyth Air Conditioning Inc complete your annual air conditioning service.

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

  • Inspect for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if required, test for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, as opposed to unlawfully releasing it to the environment.
  • Inspect for correct airflow through the system.
  • Verify 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 a top priority. That’s because nothing else that easy 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 regularly. We suggest looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will be dependent 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 component of air conditioner maintenance, call Smyth Air Conditioning Inc today at 561-533-6066 .
