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

Having regular air conditioning service done at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the West Palm Beach season, have the specialists at Arnold's Air Conditioning of South Florida Inc complete your routine air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be finished during a usual air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, recover any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, as opposed to illicitly discharging it to the atmosphere.
  • Look for correct airflow in the system.
  • Check the correct electric control sequence to make sure of adequate sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Look for the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters regularly is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help ensure your air conditioner continues to operate at a high level of efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it habitually. We recommend checking it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual factors in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
