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


Having regular air conditioning service performed at least annually can help lengthen the life of your air conditioner and keep it operating at peak efficiency. Before we get to the hottest days of the Pekin summer, have the professionals at Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC conduct your annual air conditioning service.

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

  • Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if required, 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 unlawfully freeing it to the atmosphere.
  • Check for proper airflow in the system.
  • Confirm the right electric control sequence to ensure proper sequence of operation.
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Inspect the accuracy of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, replacing or cleaning your air filters frequently is a top priority. That’s because nothing else that easy can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to operate at top efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or swapped out 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 advice. How often it actually needs cleaning or replacement will bank on individual influences in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.
