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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Cape Coral season, have the experts at Comfort Zone Inc perform your yearly air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be done during a proper air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Inspect for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if needed, test for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, as opposed to illegally releasing it to the atmosphere.
  • Look for correct airflow throughout the system.
  • Confirm the correct electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Inspect the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters frequently is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that simple can help ensure your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it habitually. We advise looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will be dependent 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 regular air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another aspect of air conditioner maintenance, call Comfort Zone Inc today at 239-214-0411.
