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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least yearly can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Williamsport summertime, have the specialists at Lycoming Heating Company complete your routine air conditioning service.

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

  • Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of illegally discharging it to the atmosphere.
  • Inspect for proper airflow in the system.
  • Verify the right electric control sequence to guarantee proper sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and strengthen 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 guarantee your air conditioner continues to run at a high level of efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out 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 requires 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.

If it’s time for your annual air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another element of air conditioner maintenance, call Lycoming Heating Company today at 570-244-2510.
