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


Having routine air conditioning service completed at least annually can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at peak efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Springfield summer, have the specialists at Bormida Mechanical Services Inc conduct your yearly air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be completed during a usual air conditioning service appointment. From, your technician should always:

  • Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, look for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, retrieve any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, instead of illicitly releasing it to the atmosphere.
  • Check for correct airflow through the system.
  • Verify the right electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Check the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters frequently is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that simple can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to run at a high level of efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it regularly. We advise checking it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
