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

Having standard air conditioning service done 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 Wisconsin Rapids season, have the experts at Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc perform your yearly air conditioning service.

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

  • Look for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if needed, test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, as opposed to illicitly discharging it to the atmosphere.
  • Inspect for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the correct electric control sequence to ensure correct sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Inspect the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters regularly is essential. That’s because nothing else that easy can help ensure your air conditioner continues to work at top efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it frequently. We advise checking it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will be dependent 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 routine air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another element of air conditioner maintenance, call Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc today at 715-301-0256.
