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

Having routine air conditioning service completed at least yearly can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Carson City summer, have the professionals at Anderson Heating & A/C perform your yearly air conditioning service.

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

  • Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, reclaim any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, as opposed to illegally discharging it to the atmosphere.
  • Look for correct airflow throughout the system.
  • Check the right electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Check the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters routinely is essential. That’s because nothing else that simple can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to run at top efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We advise checking it every month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will bank on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust gets into 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 Anderson Heating & A/C today at 775-230-7628.
