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

Having regular air conditioning service performed 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 warmest days of the Cedar Rapids summer, have the professionals at Ilten's Incorporated perform your yearly air conditioning service.

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

  • Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, recover any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than illicitly discharging it to the air.
  • Check for correct airflow throughout the system.
  • Confirm the right electric control sequence to guarantee adequate 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, replacing or cleaning your air filters frequently is essential. That’s because nothing else that easy can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to operate at a high level of efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it frequently. We suggest taking a look at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual factors 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 Ilten's Incorporated today at 319-208-3295.
