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

Cooling

Having standard air conditioning service done at least annually can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at top efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Tomball summer, have the specialists at Premium Air Services LLC perform your yearly 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:

  • Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if required, test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of illicitly freeing it to the environment.
  • Check for proper airflow through the system.
  • Check the correct electric control sequence to ensure proper sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Check the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters frequently is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that easy can help ensure your air conditioner continues to run at a high level of efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it habitually. We advise looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. 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.

If it’s time for your routine air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another component of air conditioner maintenance, call Premium Air Services LLC today at 713-688-8784.
