How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having standard air conditioning service performed at least yearly can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Williamsport summer, have the specialists at Lycoming Heating Company complete your routine air conditioning service. Particular tasks should always be completed during a usual air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your technician should always: Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, test for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than illegally discharging it to the air. Inspect for correct airflow in the system. Confirm the correct electric control sequence to guarantee adequate sequence of operation. Review 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 essential. That’s because nothing else that easy can help ensure your air conditioner continues to operate at a high level of efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it frequently. We recommend checking it every month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
