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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Shreveport season, have the specialists at Moon's Air perform your annual air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be completed during a proper air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Check for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if needed, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, recover any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, rather than illicitly freeing it to the atmosphere.
  • Look for proper airflow in 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, swapping out 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 work at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it habitually. We recommend looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will bank on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust enters 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 Moon's Air today at 318-671-5355.
