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 running at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Keokuk summer, have the experts at WM J Kraus & Son conduct your routine air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be completed during a proper air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Inspect for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, recover any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, rather than unlawfully releasing it to the environment.
  • Look for correct airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to make sure of correct sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Check the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters routinely is essential. That’s because nothing else that easy can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to run 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 inspect it habitually. We recommend taking a look at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually requires 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.
