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

Having regular air conditioning service performed at least annually can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at peak efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Charlottesville season, have the experts at Beck Cohen conduct your annual air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be done during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Check for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, as opposed to unlawfully freeing it to the air.
  • Check for efficient airflow in the system.
  • Confirm the correct electric control sequence to guarantee adequate sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Check the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters frequently is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that easy can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to run at top efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it habitually. We advise checking it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will bank on individual factors in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
