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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least annually 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 usual air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Look for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, rather than illicitly freeing it to the atmosphere.
  • Look for correct 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 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 work at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it regularly. We recommend taking a look 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 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 component of air conditioner maintenance, call Moon's Air today at 318-215-7938.
