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

Having routine air conditioning service completed at least annually can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at peak efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the West Palm Beach season, have the specialists at Summit Air Conditioning Inc conduct your annual air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be done during a proper air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Look for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if required, test for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than illegally releasing it to the atmosphere.
  • Look for efficient airflow in the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to make sure of correct sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Check the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters frequently is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to operate at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it frequently. We suggest looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will depend on individual influences in your home, like how much dust comes 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 Summit Air Conditioning Inc today at 561-582-3390.
