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

Having regular air conditioning service completed at least yearly can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at peak efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Corpus Christi summer, have the professionals at McNatt Inc perform your routine air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be done during a usual air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, rather than illegally freeing it to the atmosphere.
  • Look for correct airflow in the system.
  • Confirm the appropriate electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Check the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters routinely is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that simple can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it regularly. We recommend checking it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will bank on individual influences in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
