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

Having standard air conditioning service performed at least yearly can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at top efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the York season, have the specialists at Strine's Heating & A/C Inc conduct your yearly air conditioning service.

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

  • Inspect for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if needed, examine 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 discharging it to the atmosphere.
  • Inspect for correct airflow through the system.
  • Confirm the correct electric control sequence to guarantee adequate sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Look for 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 straightforward can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to work at peak efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We suggest taking a look at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will depend on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
