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

Having routine air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Carpentersville summer, have the specialists at Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc complete your annual air conditioning service.

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

  • Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, instead of illicitly discharging it to the environment.
  • Inspect for proper airflow through the system.
  • Confirm the right electric control sequence to guarantee proper 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 regularly is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that simple can help ensure your air conditioner continues to run at top efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We suggest checking it every month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
