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 Muskogee summertime, have the professionals at Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc. perform your routine air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be done during a proper air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your expert 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 required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, rather than illegally discharging it to the air.
  • Look for correct airflow through the system.
  • Confirm the appropriate electric control sequence to guarantee proper sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Check the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters routinely is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to run at peak efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We suggest taking a look at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will bank on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.

If it’s time for your regular air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another aspect of air conditioner maintenance, call Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc. today at 918-682-8238.
