Before we get to the muggiest days of the Show Low summer, have the specialists at Rim Country Mechanical, Inc. conduct your yearly air conditioning service. Particular tasks should always be done during a proper air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your expert should always: Check for the proper amount of refrigerant, and if required, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is required, reclaim any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, rather than illicitly releasing it to the air. Look for proper airflow in the system. Confirm the correct electric control sequence to ensure adequate sequence of operation. Inspect electric terminals, clean and strengthen connections. Inspect the exactness 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 simple can help make sure that your air conditioner continues to work at a high level of efficiency. Besides when the air filter is cleaned or changed during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should check it habitually. We suggest checking it every 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 gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
