How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having routine air conditioning service completed at least yearly can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at peak efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Portland Metro summer, have the experts at Central Air Inc perform your yearly air conditioning service. Particular tasks should always be finished during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your technician should always: Inspect for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, reclaim any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, rather than unlawfully releasing it to the atmosphere. Inspect for efficient airflow through the system. Verify the right electric control sequence to make sure of correct sequence of operation. Examine electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections. Check the precision of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters routinely is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that simple can help ensure your air conditioner continues to operate at a high level of efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We advise taking a look at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
