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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least yearly can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at top efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Saint Charles summer, have the specialists at Air Alliance Team complete your annual air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be completed during a usual air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if required, examine for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, rather than illicitly discharging it to the air.
  • Check for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Check the correct electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Inspect the precision 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 ensure your air conditioner continues to run at top efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it frequently. We suggest checking it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will depend on individual influences in your home, like how much dust enters 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 element of air conditioner maintenance, call Air Alliance Team today at 636-229-1544.
