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

Having routine air conditioning service done at least annually can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at peak efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Irvine summer, have the experts at True Home Heating and Air Conditioning conduct your annual air conditioning service.

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

  • Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if needed, examine for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, as opposed to illicitly discharging it to the atmosphere.
  • Look for proper airflow in the system.
  • Check the appropriate 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, changing or cleaning your air filters routinely is essential. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it habitually. We recommend looking at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
