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

June 16, 2017

Having standard air conditioning service completed at least yearly can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Hasbrouck Heights summer, have the professionals at ACE Solutions conduct your yearly air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be completed during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. According to, your technician should always:

  • Inspect for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, examine for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, instead of illegally discharging it to the environment.
  • Look for correct airflow in the system.
  • Check the right electric control sequence to ensure correct sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Look for the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters regularly is essential. That’s because nothing else that easy can help ensure your air conditioner continues to operate at top efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We suggest taking a look at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will bank on individual factors in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
