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

Having routine air conditioning service performed at least yearly can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at peak efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Tuscaloosa season, have the experts at KDM Service Corporation perform your yearly air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be done during a usual air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, examine for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, reclaim any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, instead of unlawfully releasing it to the atmosphere.
  • Look for correct airflow through the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to make sure of proper sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Inspect the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters regularly is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that easy can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to run at a high level of efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it frequently. We advise taking a look at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually needs 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 regular air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another aspect of air conditioner maintenance, call KDM Service Corporation today at 205-208-8090.
