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

Having standard air conditioning service completed 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 Phoenix summer, have the specialists at Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc conduct your routine air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be finished during a proper air conditioning service appointment. According to, your technician should always:

  • Inspect for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if needed, look for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than illegally releasing it to the environment.
  • Inspect for efficient airflow in the system.
  • Check the correct electric control sequence to guarantee proper sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and tighten connections.
  • Inspect the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters frequently is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that easy can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to run at top efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it regularly. We recommend taking a look at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual influences in your home, like how much dust comes into your home and whether or not you have pets.
