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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least yearly can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at top efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Baltimore summer, have the professionals at Quality Refrigeration perform your yearly air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be completed during a usual air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Check for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if needed, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, reclaim any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of illegally discharging it to the air.
  • Look for proper airflow in the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to ensure proper sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Check the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters routinely is essential. 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 swapped out during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it habitually. We advise taking a look at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will bank on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
