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

Having regular air conditioning service done at least annually can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at peak efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Las Vegas season, have the specialists at Polar Air & Heating Inc complete your annual air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be finished during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, examine for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, recover any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, as opposed to illegally releasing it to the atmosphere.
  • Check for efficient airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the right electric control sequence to ensure correct sequence of operation.
  • Review electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Look for 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 simple can help ensure your air conditioner continues to operate at a high level of efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it regularly. We suggest taking a look at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will depend on individual factors in your home, like how much dust comes 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 component of air conditioner maintenance, call Polar Air & Heating Inc today at 702-623-0579.
