Having routine air conditioning service performed at least once a year can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it running at peak efficiency. Before we get to the warmest days of the Bossier City summertime, have the specialists at Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning perform your annual air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be finished during a proper air conditioning service appointment. From energy.gov, your expert should always:

  • Look for the correct amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks utilizing a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be cleared from the system, instead of illicitly releasing it to the atmosphere.
  • Inspect for proper airflow throughout the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to make sure of proper sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections.
  • Look for the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters frequently is essential. That’s because nothing else that easy can help ensure your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. Outside of when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should check it regularly. We recommend taking a look at it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will depend on individual influences in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.

If it’s time for your routine air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another aspect of air conditioner maintenance, call Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning today at 800-COOLING.
