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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least yearly can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at top efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Albuquerque season, have the professionals at Desert Suns Heating & Cooling conduct your annual air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be done during a usual air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Check for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if needed, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, recover any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of unlawfully releasing it to the environment.
  • Inspect for efficient airflow in the system.
  • Verify the right electric control sequence to guarantee 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 routinely is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that easy can help ensure your air conditioner continues to run at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it frequently. We recommend checking it every month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will bank on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
