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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least yearly can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at top efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Minocqua summer, have the experts at Danco Heating & Cooling conduct your yearly air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be completed during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Look for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, recover any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, rather than illicitly discharging it to the atmosphere.
  • Check for proper airflow through the system.
  • Verify the right electric control sequence to make sure of correct sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Inspect the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters frequently is essential. That’s because nothing else that simple can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to work at peak efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it frequently. We recommend checking it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will depend on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
