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

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

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

  • Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, examine for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, rather than illicitly releasing it to the air.
  • Look for efficient airflow through the system.
  • Confirm the right electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Check the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters regularly is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help ensure your air conditioner continues to run at a high level of efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We suggest taking a look at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually requires 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.

If it’s time for your routine air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another component of air conditioner maintenance, call Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. today at 662-281-1231.
