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

Having routine air conditioning service performed at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at peak efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Shelby summertime, have the professionals at Hopper Heating and Air conduct your routine air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be done during a usual air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, look for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, recover any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of illicitly releasing it to the air.
  • Inspect for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Check the right electric control sequence to ensure proper sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Check the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters regularly is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that easy can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to operate at peak efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it frequently. We recommend checking it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will depend on individual influences in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.

If it’s time for your annual air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another component of air conditioner maintenance, call Hopper Heating and Air today at 704-233-7363.
