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

Having standard air conditioning service performed at least once a year 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 Suffolk/Nassau County summer, have the professionals at Airmax Long Island Inc conduct your yearly air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be completed during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Check for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if required, test for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, recover any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of unlawfully freeing it to the environment.
  • Look for efficient airflow throughout the system.
  • Confirm the appropriate electric control sequence to ensure proper sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Check the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters routinely is essential. That’s because nothing else that easy can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to operate at a high level of efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We recommend 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 factors in your home, like how much dust gets 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 component of air conditioner maintenance, call Airmax Long Island Inc today at 631-737-5566.
