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

June 16, 2017

Having routine air conditioning service done at least yearly can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at peak efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Chelan and Wenatchee summertime, have the specialists at Lakeside Heating & Air complete your yearly air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be finished during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. According to, your specialist should always:

  • Check for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if required, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, instead of illicitly discharging it to the atmosphere.
  • Check for efficient airflow in the system.
  • Check the correct electric control sequence to make sure of correct sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Inspect the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters regularly is essential. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help ensure your air conditioner continues to run at top efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We advise checking it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual influences in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
