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

Having routine air conditioning service completed at least annually can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Marshalltown season, have the professionals at Kapaun & Brown Inc. conduct your yearly air conditioning service.

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

  • Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if needed, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, reclaim any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of unlawfully freeing it to the environment.
  • Check for efficient airflow in the system.
  • Confirm the correct electric control sequence to ensure correct sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Inspect the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters routinely is essential. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it regularly. We advise looking at it monthly 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.

If it’s time for your routine air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another element of air conditioner maintenance, call Kapaun & Brown Inc. today at 641-753-3563.
