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

Having routine air conditioning service done at least annually can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Grand Prairie summertime, have the professionals at Mustang Mechanical conduct your yearly air conditioning service.

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

  • Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if needed, examine for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, instead of illegally discharging it to the environment.
  • Check for correct airflow throughout the system.
  • Confirm the right electric control sequence to make sure of proper sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Look for the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters frequently is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that straightforward 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 yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it frequently. We advise looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will bank on individual factors in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.

If it’s time for your routine air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another element of air conditioner maintenance, call Mustang Mechanical today at 972-445-9504.
