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 operating at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Orange County summer, have the experts at Mighty Ducts conduct your yearly air conditioning service.

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

  • Look for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if needed, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, as opposed to unlawfully discharging it to the air.
  • Look for correct airflow through the system.
  • Verify the right electric control sequence to guarantee adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Inspect the precision 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 straightforward can help ensure your air conditioner continues to run at a high level of efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We advise checking it every month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual factors in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.

If it’s time for your regular air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another element of air conditioner maintenance, call Mighty Ducts today at 714-464-3376.
