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 operating at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Rapid City season, have the specialists at Street Heating & Sheet Metal Inc perform your annual air conditioning service.

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

  • Check for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if needed, examine for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, recover any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of illicitly discharging it to the environment.
  • Inspect for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Confirm the appropriate electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Check the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters regularly is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We advise taking a look at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will bank on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
