Having standard air conditioning service completed at least once a year can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at top efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Dallas and Atlanta surrounding areas summertime, have the specialists at Innovative Mechanical, LLC conduct your annual air conditioning service.

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

  • Look for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, retrieve any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, as opposed to illegally freeing it to the environment.
  • Inspect for efficient airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the right electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Look for the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters regularly is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that easy can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to operate at peak efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it frequently. We recommend looking at it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s advice. 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.
