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 hottest days of the Bishop summer, have the professionals at Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning complete your yearly 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 emptied from the system, as opposed to illicitly freeing it to the environment.
  • Look for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Check the right electric control sequence to make sure of proper sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Look for the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters routinely 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 swapped out during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it frequently. We recommend 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.

If it’s time for your annual air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another element of air conditioner maintenance, call Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning today at 760-784-9034.
