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

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at top efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Denton summertime, have the professionals at Oak Point Heating and Air LLC conduct your annual air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be completed during a usual air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, test for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, as opposed to illegally discharging it to the atmosphere.
  • Check for proper airflow through the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to guarantee 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, replacing or cleaning your air filters frequently is essential. That’s because nothing else that simple can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We advise looking at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually requires 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 element of air conditioner maintenance, call Oak Point Heating and Air LLC today at 940-202-1202.
