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

Having standard air conditioning service done at least annually can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Hudsonville summertime, have the specialists at West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services conduct your yearly air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be done during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, rather than illegally freeing it to the air.
  • Inspect for proper airflow through the system.
  • Verify the right electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Look for the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters routinely is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help ensure your air conditioner continues to run at top efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We suggest looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will bank on individual influences 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 component of air conditioner maintenance, call West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services today at (616) 669-3961.
