Having routine air conditioning service completed at least annually can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at top efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Lake Charles season, have the specialists at ACR Air Conditioning & Heating Inc conduct your annual air conditioning service.

Particular tasks should always be done during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Look for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, examine for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, as opposed to illegally discharging it to the atmosphere.
  • Inspect for efficient airflow through the system.
  • Confirm the correct electric control sequence to ensure adequate 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 routinely is essential. That’s because nothing else that straightforward can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to operate at top efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it habitually. We recommend looking at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will bank on individual influences 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 component of air conditioner maintenance, call ACR Air Conditioning & Heating Inc today at 337-335-0992.
