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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Franklin Lakes season, have the specialists at Total Comfort conduct your annual air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be done during a proper air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, test for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, as opposed to illicitly freeing it to the atmosphere.
  • Check for efficient airflow through the system.
  • Check the correct electric control sequence to guarantee adequate sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Inspect the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters frequently is essential. That’s because nothing else that easy can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to operate at top efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it habitually. We advise looking at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually demands 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.
