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

Having standard air conditioning service performed 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 warmest days of the Anaheim summertime, have the professionals at Eco Fresh HVAC Inc. perform your yearly air conditioning service.

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

  • Inspect for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, recover any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, as opposed to illegally discharging it to the environment.
  • Inspect for efficient airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the right electric control sequence to ensure correct sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Check the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters routinely is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that easy can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We recommend checking it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. 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 routine air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another aspect of air conditioner maintenance, call Eco Fresh HVAC Inc. today at 714-855-1717.
