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

Having standard air conditioning service done at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at peak efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Oxford summer, have the experts at Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. complete your annual air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be done during a proper air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, test for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, retrieve any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, instead of illicitly releasing it to the atmosphere.
  • Check for efficient airflow throughout the system.
  • Confirm the right electric control sequence to make sure of adequate sequence of operation.
  • Review 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 regularly is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to operate at peak efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it regularly. We suggest taking a look at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will bank on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
