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

Having regular air conditioning service performed at least annually can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at peak efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Lexington season, have the professionals at Kelley Mechanical conduct your yearly air conditioning service.

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

  • Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, test for refrigerant leaks with 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 environment.
  • Look for efficient airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to make sure of adequate 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 regularly is essential. That’s because nothing else that simple can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to work at peak efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We advise looking at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will depend on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust gets 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 aspect of air conditioner maintenance, call Kelley Mechanical today at 859-209-3003.
