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

Having regular air conditioning service completed at least annually can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Cedar Rapids summertime, have the professionals at Ilten's Incorporated conduct your annual air conditioning service.

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

  • Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, instead of illicitly discharging it to the atmosphere.
  • Look for correct airflow through the system.
  • Confirm the right electric control sequence to guarantee proper sequence of operation.
  • Review 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 frequently is essential. That’s because nothing else that simple can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to run at peak efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it frequently. We suggest taking a look at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually requires 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 annual air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another aspect of air conditioner maintenance, call Ilten's Incorporated today at 319-363-0283.
