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

Having regular air conditioning service performed at least annually can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Waterloo summer, have the experts at Cronin-Verheul Heating & A/C Ltd conduct your yearly air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be completed during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Check for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, recover any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, instead of unlawfully freeing it to the environment.
  • Inspect for correct airflow through the system.
  • Verify the right electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Inspect the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters routinely is essential. That’s because nothing else that simple can help ensure your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We advise taking a look at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will depend on individual influences 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 Cronin-Verheul Heating & A/C Ltd today at 519-664-0600.
