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

Having standard air conditioning service performed at least annually can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at top efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Bountiful season, have the experts at Craig's Appliance Heating & Cooling conduct your annual air conditioning service.

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

  • Inspect for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, instead of illicitly releasing it to the environment.
  • Look for proper airflow in the system.
  • Confirm the correct electric control sequence to make sure of correct sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Inspect the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters regularly is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that easy can help ensure your air conditioner continues to operate at a high level of efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We advise looking at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual influences in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
