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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least annually can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at top efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Des Moines summer, have the experts at Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling complete your yearly air conditioning service.

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

  • Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if needed, 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 illegally releasing it to the air.
  • Inspect for correct airflow through the system.
  • Confirm the right electric control sequence to make sure of correct sequence of operation.
  • Inspect 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 frequently is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that simple can help ensure your air conditioner continues to run at peak efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We advise looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.

If it’s time for your routine air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another component of air conditioner maintenance, call Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling today at 515-207-6569.
