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

Having routine air conditioning service completed at least annually can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at peak efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Lincoln summertime, have the experts at AW Heating & Air Conditioning conduct your yearly air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be finished during a proper air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if required, test for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, recover any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, as opposed to illegally discharging it to the air.
  • Check for correct airflow throughout the system.
  • Confirm the correct electric control sequence to guarantee proper sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Check the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters frequently is essential. That’s because nothing else that easy can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to run at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it regularly. We recommend checking it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. 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.

If it’s time for your annual air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another element of air conditioner maintenance, call AW Heating & Air Conditioning today at 402-438-7992.
