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


Having regular air conditioning service done at least once a year can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Columbus season, have the specialists at Wolfe & Sons Inc complete your routine air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be finished during a usual air conditioning service appointment. From, your technician should always:

  • Inspect for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if needed, test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than illicitly discharging it to the air.
  • Check for proper airflow in the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to guarantee adequate sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Check the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters frequently is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that simple can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to run at top efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it frequently. We suggest taking a look at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual factors in your home, like how much dust enters 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 component of air conditioner maintenance, call Wolfe & Sons Inc today at 614-362-9123.
