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

Cooling

Having standard air conditioning service done at least annually 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 Waxahachie season, have the professionals at C&C Refrigeration Inc. complete your annual air conditioning service.

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

  • Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, examine for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, recover any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, rather than illegally freeing it to the air.
  • Inspect for correct airflow in the system.
  • Check the appropriate electric control sequence to ensure correct sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Inspect the precision 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 simple can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to run at a high level of efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it regularly. We advise looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will be dependent 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 regular air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another element of air conditioner maintenance, call C&C Refrigeration Inc. today at 972-938-0033.
