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

Having routine air conditioning service performed at least once a year can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at peak efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Winnipeg summer, have the specialists at Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning perform your routine air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be completed during a usual air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your technician should always:

  • Look for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if needed, test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, recover any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, rather than illicitly discharging it to the atmosphere.
  • Check for proper airflow in the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to guarantee adequate sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Inspect the precision 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 ensure your air conditioner continues to run at peak efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your routine air conditioning service appointment, you should inspect it regularly. We recommend checking it monthly or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually requires cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual aspects 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 Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning today at 204-272-8128.
