How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having routine air conditioning service done at least yearly can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Beaverton summertime, have the experts at Garoken Energy Co. Inc. perform your yearly air conditioning service. Particular tasks should always be finished 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 needed, test for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, recover any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, rather than unlawfully freeing it to the environment. Inspect for proper airflow through the system. Confirm the correct electric control sequence to guarantee proper sequence of operation. Review electric terminals, clean and tighten connections. Look for the accuracy of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing 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. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We recommend looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually demands 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.
