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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least annually can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at top efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Mechanicsville season, have the experts at M & S Heating & Air LLC conduct your routine air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be done during a proper air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, examine for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, rather than unlawfully releasing it to the atmosphere.
  • Check for correct airflow in the system.
  • Confirm the right electric control sequence to guarantee proper sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Look for the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters frequently is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to run at peak efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We recommend looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will depend on individual influences in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.

If it’s time for your routine air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another element of air conditioner maintenance, call M & S Heating & Air LLC today at 301-363-4699.
