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

Having routine air conditioning service completed at least annually 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 Great Falls season, have the experts at Falls Mechanical Services LLC conduct your annual air conditioning service.

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

  • Look for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if required, test for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, instead of unlawfully freeing it to the atmosphere.
  • Check for efficient airflow through the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to make sure of adequate sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Look for the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters routinely is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that simple can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it frequently. We suggest looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual influences in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
