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

Having standard air conditioning service performed at least annually can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at top efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Racine season, have the professionals at Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc perform your routine air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be finished during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Inspect for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, reclaim any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, instead of illicitly releasing it to the air.
  • Look for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the right electric control sequence to ensure correct sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Look for the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters routinely is essential. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help ensure your air conditioner continues to run at a high level of efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it regularly. We recommend looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will bank on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust enters 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 element of air conditioner maintenance, call Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc today at 262-358-9468.
