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

Having regular air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Keokuk summertime, have the professionals at WM J Kraus & Son conduct your routine air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be finished during a usual air conditioning service appointment. As stated by 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 necessary, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, instead of illegally releasing it to the environment.
  • Look for proper airflow through 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 regularly 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 replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it habitually. We advise looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will depend on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.

If it’s time for your regular air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another element of air conditioner maintenance, call WM J Kraus & Son today at 319-229-2318.
