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

Having regular air conditioning service completed at least annually can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Lodi summer, have the specialists at Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning complete your annual air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be completed during a proper air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, as opposed to unlawfully freeing it to the atmosphere.
  • Inspect for correct airflow through the system.
  • Verify the correct electric control sequence to guarantee proper sequence of operation.
  • Examine 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 regularly is essential. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to operate at peak efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it regularly. We advise looking at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will depend on individual factors in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
