Having standard air conditioning service performed at least yearly 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 Columbia summertime, have the experts at Watts Electrical & Air Conditioning complete your annual air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be completed during a usual air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, test for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than illicitly freeing it to the air.
  • Inspect for efficient airflow throughout the system.
  • Check the correct electric control sequence to make sure of proper sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Check the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters regularly is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that simple can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it frequently. We advise taking a look at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will bank on individual influences in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
