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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least yearly can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Colorado Springs season, have the professionals at Triton HVAC & Refrigeration perform your annual air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be done during a proper air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, retrieve any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, instead of illicitly freeing it to the air.
  • Check for efficient airflow through the system.
  • Check the appropriate electric control sequence to guarantee proper sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Look for the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters frequently is essential. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help ensure your air conditioner continues to work 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 habitually. We recommend looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will depend on individual factors in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
