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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at top efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Payson summer, have the experts at North Mechanical Heating and Cooling perform your annual air conditioning service.

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

  • Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, test for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, rather than illicitly discharging it to the environment.
  • Check for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Look for the exactness 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 easy can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to run at top efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We advise taking a look at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will depend on individual factors 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 component of air conditioner maintenance, call North Mechanical Heating and Cooling today at 928-263-8570.
