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

Having standard air conditioning service done at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Sylmar season, have the experts at American Premier Heating & Air Conditioning complete your yearly air conditioning service.

Some tasks should always be done during a usual air conditioning service appointment. According to, your expert should always:

  • Check for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if required, examine for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, recover any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, rather than unlawfully discharging it to the environment.
  • Look for efficient airflow in the system.
  • Confirm the appropriate electric control sequence to guarantee correct sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Check the precision of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, swapping out or cleaning your air filters routinely is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that easy can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to run at top efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it regularly. We recommend looking at it every month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will be dependent on individual aspects in your home, like how much dust comes 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 American Premier Heating & Air Conditioning today at 818-275-0897.
