How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having standard air conditioning service done at least annually can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at peak efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Wisconsin Rapids season, have the professionals at Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc conduct your annual air conditioning service. Certain tasks should always be done during a proper air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your specialist should always: Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is required, recover any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, as opposed to illicitly discharging it to the air. Inspect for proper airflow through the system. Confirm the right electric control sequence to make sure of correct sequence of operation. Review electric terminals, clean and tighten connections. Inspect the accuracy of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters regularly is essential. That’s because nothing else that simple can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check 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 influences in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
