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

Having routine air conditioning service performed at least annually can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Pocatello summertime, have the professionals at Vogts Heating & Air conduct your routine air conditioning service.

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

  • Look 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 emptied from the system, as opposed to illicitly releasing it to the air.
  • Look for efficient airflow throughout the system.
  • Check the correct electric control sequence to make sure of adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Look for the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters regularly is essential. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to operate at peak efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it frequently. We suggest taking a look at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will bank on individual influences in your home, like how much dust comes 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 Vogts Heating & Air today at 208-621-0129.
