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 running at peak efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Dayton summertime, have the experts at Jent Mechanical LLC conduct your routine air conditioning service.

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

  • Check for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if needed, look for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, recover any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of illegally releasing it to the air.
  • Inspect for efficient airflow through the system.
  • Confirm the right electric control sequence to make sure of proper sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Inspect the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters regularly is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help ensure your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it regularly. We recommend looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will depend on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust enters 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 Jent Mechanical LLC today at 937-845-1111.
