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 hottest 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. According to, your specialist should always:

  • Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, examine for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, retrieve any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, instead of illegally releasing it to the air.
  • Inspect for proper airflow through the system.
  • Confirm the correct electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation.
  • Review 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. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it regularly. We suggest taking a look at it monthly 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 annual air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another aspect of air conditioner maintenance, call West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services today at (616) 669-3961.
