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 functioning at peak efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Augusta summertime, have the professionals at McCune Heating & Cooling complete your routine air conditioning service.

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

  • Check for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, recover any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, as opposed to illicitly freeing it to the air.
  • Look for efficient airflow in the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to make sure of proper sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Check the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters routinely is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to work at peak efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it regularly. We suggest taking a look at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will bank on individual influences in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.

If it’s time for your routine air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another aspect of air conditioner maintenance, call McCune Heating & Cooling today at 316-733-9123.
