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

Having regular air conditioning service performed at least once a year can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Richardson season, have the experts at Hammack Service Company conduct your routine air conditioning service.

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

  • Check for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if needed, examine for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, as opposed to unlawfully freeing it to the environment.
  • Look for efficient airflow through the system.
  • Verify the right electric control sequence to guarantee adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Inspect 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 simple can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to work at peak efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We suggest looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual influences 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 aspect of air conditioner maintenance, call Hammack Service Company today at 972-669-9192.
