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

Having routine air conditioning service done at least yearly can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at top efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Bishop summer, have the professionals at Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning complete your annual air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be done 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 necessary, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, reclaim any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, as opposed to illicitly freeing it to the environment.
  • Look for correct airflow throughout the system.
  • Check the correct electric control sequence to make sure of adequate sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Look for the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters regularly is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that easy can help ensure your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it frequently. We advise checking it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
